Impressive fly-by, during awful weather conditions, by this Dutch F-104G Starfighter, wearing a special demo c/s. Scan from old slide.

Nice pic. Seems a little odd to be full burner with your speedbrakes out still

Great pIcture!
And for the pilot to show the plane performance:
Critical in this angle of attack position for the wings (ldg configuration) with ldg gear and speed brakes out to reduced speed. The aterbuner is urgently needed for power to receive lift.
I was crew chief of the D-8331 from 1971-1975 at 322 Sq. based at leeuwarden.
Great plane, always in the air!
Tail gives the 323 sq logo, on the other side is the 322 sq logo.
Thanks, Paul S
