History

Template:Infobox aircraft type
The Lockheed NF-104A was an American mixed power, high-performance, supersonic aerospace trainer that served as a low-cost astronaut training vehicle for the X-15 and projected X-20 Dyna-Soar programs.
Three aircraft were modified from existing Lockheed F-104A airframes and served with the Aerospace Research Pilots School between 1963 and 1971, the modifications included a small supplementary rocket engine and a reaction control system for flight in the upper atmosphere. During the test program, the maximum altitude reached was more than 120,000 feet (Template:Convert/pround m). One of the aircraft was destroyed in an accident while being flown by Chuck Yeager. The accident was depicted in the book The Right Stuff and the film of the same name.

    Very pretty model with some inaccuracies (BogdanX mentioned the split tailplane). Also, the flaps seem to work in reverse since you actually included wing parts in the moving fuselage parts. This doesn’t work in SP. Either use tiny (hidden) wings with regular control surfaces as flaps or add moving wing parts front of the CoL. Otherwise it won’t work. This way, flaps come down, plane wants to descend instead of increasing lift. Not how it works IRL. Having the leading edge flaps work separately by using trim also seems like an odd choice, since they usually either are automatic or work in conjunction with the trailing edge flaps (not sure which is the case for the F-104).
