"Lulu Belle". The Lockheed P-80 Shooting Star was the first American combat-ready jet fighter, and was the first American production combat aircraft to exceed 500 mph in level flight. It was the first American jet-powered aircraft to score a victory in air-to-air combat. It participated in the world's first operational combat mission that was assisted by mid-air refuelling. For a brief time, it held the world's air speed record. Now preserved at the Smithsonian NASM.
