AMI - F-104 Starfighter pilots


Recommended Posts

Thank you for accepting me into the forum. I write for aviation magazines in the UK and I am currently working on research on the F-104 for an article about his great aircraft. I have a request for the Italian group members:

A request for assistance. I am currently working on an article about the F-104 in AMI service. I hope to obtain information from pilots of the AMI who flew the 'Spillone' for the article. I wish to know about what it was like to fly, its capabilities as a fighter/weapon system. I would also like to contact a pilot who flew the last most upgraded AMI variant. If you feel you might be able to contribute something please send me a message or email me for further contacts I am on a fairly tight deadline and would appreciate your information by 8 September. I look forward to hearing from you.

La ringrazio per aver accettato nel forum. SCRIVO per l'aviazione riviste del REGNO UNITO e attualmente sto lavorando su una ricerca sulla F-104 Starfighter per un articolo sul suo grande aeromobile. Ho una domanda per il gruppo italiano membri:

UNA richiesta di assistenza. Attualmente sto lavorando su un articolo a proposito dell'F-104 Starfighter in servizio AMI. Spero di ottenere informazioni dai piloti dell'AMI che hanno volato "Spillone" per l'articolo. Vorrei sapere che cosa era come di volare, le sue capacità di combattente/sistema di armi. Vorrei anche contattare un pilota che ha volato l'ultimo più aggiornato AMI variante. Se pensate che potrebbe essere in grado di contribuire in qualche modo mi può inviare un messaggio o mandami una e-mail per ulteriori contatti sono su un termine abbastanza stretto e gradirebbe informazioni da 8 Settembre. Sono ansioso di sentire da voi.

f104 the mith is a nice documentary made by our air force about that fabulous plane with interviews to pilots and technicians, it is available on youtube.


here's the link to a facebook page held by an ex air force pilot, he wrote a book about the starfighter, try sending him a message with your questions, i think he will answer you.

i hope this message has been useful.


p.s. what magazine do you write for?

Thank you Meason for the link to the film and the ex-air force pilot. I followed the link and discovered that I am already in contact with him! I write for 'Flypast', 'Aeroplane', 'Aviation News' and a few others. I am a freelance aviation writer.
