No +george lăzărescu sorry those are Lockheed F-104 Starfighter.
Widow-maker in the hands of the krauts
many fatal crashes with these German f104 due to excessive armament.
We used to enjoy watching them come into Heyford.
Very hairy aircraft. Lots of crashes. Fast but deadly widowmaker.
+Francois H. In LARGE part, the accidents were actually contributed to their diminutive wings and not having enough surface area to provide neccesary lift in high-G turns.
What is these thing? Do they have wings at all? How can they install missiles and so on?
+HS SH If I'm not mistaken, first of all, due to their stubby little wings, they were an ideal platform to equip bombs with because of its rigidity. But due to having cannons and the ability to carry missiles, it was given the "fighter" (F) designator, rather than the bomber (B) designator.
Same with the F-111 And even the F-117.
The red baron would love these things
+Shadow Rider They also had to operate low-level a lot, didn't they?
+Jeb Hoge I think some did.More as an observation platform, I'd say.
+HS SH wings designed for B-61 air burst, gravity guided thermonuclear device. Yield was adjustable up to 340kt. High-speed bomb delivery system, little more.
Seen Hondas with larger rear tea-tray wings
+Qwerty Uiop actually some B-61s were adjustable up to a mT.
+Qwerty Uiop just depends on the mod of the b-61.
They are fighting for us
This os wath i call awesame
Clarity 100% nice shot, an angle too
Yea but what kind of fire power do they have
Old generation German Luftwaffe F 104's
Is it only me that can't see wings!?
+Ashraf Hassan Yes.
They were called the window maker
Widow maker my friend. They were followed by F-4G's and then the current Typhoon
