About This File

FS2004 Italian Air Force Lockeed F-104G Starfighter. 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. 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. The "Starfighter" was an icon among jet interceptors throughout the 1970s. It was built also in Italy (G version), under licence. The first Italian F-104G flown during the end of 1962 and the last one (S version) was retired from active service in 2004 (42 years!). Textures only for two "Starfighters"of the 9 Gruppo of 4 Aerobrigata of the Aeronautica Militare Italiana (Italian Air Force), the first unit to receive the "Starfighter", based on Grosseto Airport, 1963/64. These textures require a copy of the payware Alphasim F-104G. The paints were done with the paintkit provided by Alphasim/Frank Safranek and the metal base textures provided by Henry William. Repaint by Manuele Villa.
