Description

Lockheed's F-104 Starfighter was sleek, sexy, and difficult to fly. Essentially a J-79 turbojet with tiny wings and a place for the pilot to sit, it had a poor turning radius and very unpredictable behaviour at high angles of attack along with very high takeoff and landing speeds. Yet, with modifications such as blown flaps and a stick shaker that pushed the nose down in a stall, the plane proved quite capable. Its strength was never in its agility, but rather in its speed. The type was the only aircraft in existence at the time that could sustain speeds of over Mach 2.0, and it had a stellar rate of climb. A good airplane, it sold well to foreign forces after being phased out of active USAF service in 1967. The Starfighter was an icon among jet interceptors throughout the 1970s, serving in large numbers in the US Air National Guard as well as with the German, Italian, and Canadian air forces. The last Italian Starfighters were retired from active service in 2004.
