Lockheed F-104 Starfighter, aptly called "the missile with the man in
it" by the awe-struck aviation community of its day.
by the immortal Clarence Kelly Johnson and built by Lockheed at their
mysterious Skunk Works facility in California, it was designed to be a
hunter and fighter from the outset - the shape and form of a swift killer,
a gunfighter of the modern day and age. Patrolling the skies over the
Western United States, the very countryside that its 'predecessors' rode
across on horseback, its task was to track down and intercept intruding
high speed enemy aircraft.
