We’re back from a short vacation! This weeks update is an Italian F-104S from the 37° Stormo. If you’re a regular at this site you’ll know we love Starfighters. And we love the Italians because they had these beauties in active service up until 2004. Thanks gents!

We have switched to a new website layout, we hope you like it! You may find some small glitches but we hope to solve those over the coming days.
As mentioned earlier on our Facebook page, we had a new Puerto Rican F-104C in the makes… And it’s finished! Please note details like the awesome camo and air refueling system on this Starfighter. Check it out and enjoy!

We’ve added a Hellenic Air Force bird to our collection. The F-104 Starfighter 7151 had this special paint job to commemorate the 336th “Olympus” squadron’s 50th anniversary in 1992. Quite a sight. Enjoy!

Secondly is the grey-yellow-blue 22+55 with commemorative paint scheme, for the last flight of the Starfighter in JaBoG 34. Enjoy!

We’ve added two new ItAF planes to our site. Both are from the Reparto Sperimentale Volo: the CMX611 in grey paint scheme and the spectacular MM6827 with commemorative scheme to celebrate the RSV’s 50th anniversary. Enjoy!
We’ve added a duo from the ItAF 23º Gruppo: the MM6756 and MM6719. The squadron was disbanded in 2010, but these two beautiful birds can still be admired today by clicking the images below.
