    @Lukigaming yep, the Starfighters had a notorious saftey record, especially in Germany. I believe there was a saying like "the easiest way to get a Starfighter for yourself was to buy a field and wait for one to crash in it"

    @BogdanX yeah I was having issues with the flight performance, I had to ask Chancey for help, and when he was done I decided to sacrifice realistic performance for something that flies well. I might make a realistic version sometime in the future with a real life livery and realistic performance

    hate to say it, but F-104 has one piece all moving tailplane... not elevators...
    point 1 of F-104 Cutaway

    About flight performance, this plane is way too agile.
    This plane is basically a rocket with very small wings. Its turn rate is even worse than a F-4 Phantom.
