Thread: F-104 Starfighter ?

  1. #1

    Default F-104 Starfighter ?

    I'm looking for a new toy, and I would like it to be a FREEware F-104 Starfighter. Maybe my fellow simmers here can recommend one ? I have one now, but it's kind of plain, and lacking in performance.

    Any recommendations for a new freeware F-104 Starfighter in FSX will be greatly appreciated. Just tell me where it's located ?

    Thank you - Jim

    It's officially an FS9 bird, don't know about FSX...

    Sorry, it's the old late Rey Lopez design, at that time it was top of the bill!

    Hey! Why do you want to fly that plane. I has a much bad reputation, at least among NATO members. In Germany, at the time, for example, they lost 292 to 916 planes, killing 119!!!

    No problem for the World Famous Ace.

    Jim - I think all the leads that I emailed you are going to turn out to be duds! This is an older aircraft, not very popular among the flight sim communities, it appears. I think if you want a quality download, you will probably have to go the payware route! I know you like classic older aircraft, but I think there are better fighter jets out there! I'm not in to them myself, so I can't recommend any. Just, what i sense reading some of these articles on the F104. Gerard touched on what the reputation of the F104 is, and I read the same in other articles and I will leave it at that!

    Good luck on your search! Rick

    Thank you guys, I think that you are all right in all respects. I have some beautiful flying jets, and really don't need another one. It was just an idea to try a new toy. Jan's download did fly very well, but lacked a lot of other stuff that failed to load. Plus, it was a little crude, I think FS 2004.

    Let's all forget about it and go on to something better. - Jim

    Jan's download did fly good but was incomplete. End of story.

    Crude. Yes and even the fsxj-29b.zip is mostly a FS2004 barely upgraded to FSX. Not too much time to have tested it thoroughly at this time!
