Decription

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. - Wikipedia

Directions

AG1 - Afterburner
AG2 - Drag chute

Like the real aircraft this replica also glides very poorly, so keep the speed above 250 mph for easier control. Top speed at 10,000 feet is similiar to the 1000 mph achieved by the real thing.

    @Natedog120705 I’m mostly quite rubbish at building planes so I’m glad you like it! I’m sorry about great grandpa though ☹️

    This is great!!! My great grandpa which died like 15 years ago was a great artist and he built a small replica of this airplane and it reminds me of the replica. It is very accurate!!
