Lockheed F-104 Starfighter was an American single-engine supersonic fighter jet, part of the famous “Century Series” of jets. It first flew in March 1954 and was introduced into service in early 1958. Starfighter appeared in a very turbulent time for the aviation industry, during which innovations were common and giant leaps in technological advances were made. Therefore, it remained in service with its primary user – USAF – relatively shortly. Nevertheless, improved variant for the Italian Air Force called F-104S stayed in active duty until 2004.
Lockheed F-104 Starfighter was used by many countries, some of which were involved in numerous scandals accepting it into their Air Forces. In Germany, the Starfighter was hated by its pilots due to many fatal crashes during its service. A third of the aircraft used were lost. In the same time, Spanish safety record was flawless – zero losses and Japan’s were amounted to only 15% of the fleet. The plane by itself was a significant aviation achievement, holding multiple speed and altitude records. Several privately owned F-104 Starfighter jets remain airworthy to this day.
