In 1944, the U.S. Air Force began operating its first operational fighter jet, the P-80 Shooting Star. A trainer was needed to acquaint pilots with the jet, so in 1948, Lockheed modified the P-80 by adding an extra seat for a trainer and named it the T-33A Shooting Star. Nicknamed the “T-Bird”, the T-33A proved to be a reliable aircraft that made the transition to jets simple. The T-33A served the U.S. Air Force, Navy, Marines and more than 40 other countries for over 40 years. Now you know little more about this influential plane!

No, they don't get "sealed." They are still very important to your ongiong health, just as any other medical history is. But, just as your medical record now cannot be sent to just anyone, you medical history as a juvenile is still covered by any privacy laws in your area (in the US, it is still protected by HIPAA). Was this answer helpful?

I could never get it together enugoh to order my textbooks online - by the time I was ready to buy it was the first or second week of class, so online would have taken too long. Good for you for being organized enugoh to do it well in advance! And yeah, that's WAY lame that the site doesn't even have books for basic courses.
