The Lockheed F-104 Starfighter is a single-engine, supersonic interceptor aircraft which later became widely used as an attack aircraft. It was originally developed by Lockheed for the United States Air Force (USAF), but was later produced by several other nations, seeing widespread service outside the United States. One of the Century Series of fighter aircraft, it was operated by the air forces of more than a dozen nations from 1958 to 2004. Its design team was led by Kelly Johnson, who contributed to the development of the Lockheed P-38 Lightning, Lockheed U-2, Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird, and other Lockheed aircraft.
The F-104 set numerous world records, including both airspeed and altitude records.

    A fair attempt at the F-104. This is one of the more difficult SP replicas, yet, so many attempt it. The RL jet had a blown wing system in order to bestow it with a little slower approach speed, though the real thing approached at well more than 200 mph. The blown flaps are impossible in SP—heck flaps don’t even work correctly in game, which makes it nigh impossible to accurately model the 104’s flying characteristics.

    Your F-104 doesn’t have auto roll, which is good. I don’t really know how to fix auto roll sadly.@KferoxL

    @AerialFighterSnakes How to fix it?

    It’s a SimplePlanes only phenomenon that occurs when there is drag on one side of the aircraft more than the other, resulting in an annoying tendency to roll to one side. It’s pretty annoying. @KferoxL
