What a sound, what a smoke, and what a smell! This RF-104G of 306th Sqd. (based Volkel AB) makes a last power check before taking off for a recce mission during NATO's Tactical Air Meet held at RAF Wildenrath that year. Note recce pod and shut gun muzzle and Bloodhound anti-aircraft missile battery for self-defense in background.
