The last starfighters

Derived from Lockheed's design studies on a "Super Starfighter", the F-104S was one of the most capable of the F-104 series, and destined to be the last in service worldwide. The F-104S (upgraded to ASA/M standard) was retired from service in October 2004.

Listen at 1.24 1.42 & 2.33 you can hear the distinct " howl of the GE-J-79 engine.
Although the J-79 powered many other aircraft only the starfighter made the unigue" howl "

I've had the great fortune to have flown in the back seat of one , one word.....AWESOME
