Hu. text: Az F–104 Starfighter egyhajtóműves, szuperszonikus könnyű vadászrepülőgép, melyet a Koreai háború tapasztalatai alapján hoztak létre az Amerikai Egyesült Államokban. Tervezője Kelly Johnson, az egyik leghíresebb amerikai repülőgép-konstruktőr. A repülőgép törzse nagyon hasonlít a vele egy időben tervezett U–2 stratégiai felderítőgépéhez. Sebessége és emelkedőképessége kiváló volt, de számos rossz tulajdonsága, elsősorban kis hatótávolsága és nagy (szárny) felületiterhelése miatt az Amerikai Légierőnél az 1960-as évek végére kivonták az első vonalbeli szolgálatból. Néhány NATO-tagállamban korszerűsített változatai sokáig rendszerben maradtak, Németország légierejében az 1980-as években a Tornado, Hollandiában az F–16 Fighting Falcon, Kanadában ez id őtájt az F/A–18 Hornet váltotta fel. Olaszországban az utolsó gépek 2004-ig maradtak rendszerben. A repülőgépet nagy sebessége és kis szárnyai miatt gyakran hívták Embervezette rakétának, de katasztrofális baleseti statisztikája miatt Özvegycsinálónak is. Főkonstrüktőre; Clearance "Kelly" Johnson volt a méltán egyik leghíresebb e téren.

History: In 1954, the Lockheed Company's famed designer, Kelly Johnson, created a new single-seat fighter design for use in the Korean conflict by the US Air Force. He made it small and relatively light, with a massive, powerful engine -- a combination which would make it very fast and very capable as an interceptor. The first XF-104 prototype was first flown on 7 February 1954, but nearly four years of development took place before the USAF began using the aircraft. During this time the Air Force became disinterested in fighters of the F-104's class, and they purchased less than 300 of them. However, several other allied countries, under the leadership of  West Germany, decided to manufacture an improved version for themselves. Production began in no fewer than six locations, including Belgium, Canada, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands and West Germany. When production ended, 2282 additional F-104s had been built by other nations.
Major production variants included the F-104A (first production version); NF-104A (modified F-104A used for astronaut training; utilized maneuvering thrusters on wings and fuselage for control at high altitudes); F-104C (tactical and nuclear-strike version built for the USAF's Tactical Air Command); F-104G (major production variant built in several countries and utilizing a strengthened structure, more advanced avionics, and various aerodynamic improvements); RF-104G (tactical reconnaissance version); CF-104 (Canadian-built version of the F-104G with removable aerial refueling probe). Aeritalia later developed a multi-role version called the F-104S for the Italian and Turkish air forces.
In 1985, the Italian Air Force began upgrading 150 Starfighters with modern radar, improved self-protection systems and avionics, and up-to-date weapons-delivery capability. These aircraft, designated F-104S-ASAs, are still in front-line service, and are expected to remain flying until the Eurofighter replaces them in approximately 2001. At least three F-104s are now flown by private owners in the USA, and several more are under restoration.

Developed by Lockheed as a single engine, high performance super sonic interceptor aircraft.Number Built:
The ‘Starfighter’ served the US air force from 1958 until 1967, the Air National Guard phased out the last F-104 in 1975. Nasa stoped using the F-104 in 1994.
Several European air forces had the F-104 in service mainly the F-104G, they served well into the 1980′s. The final version of the ‘Starfighter’ the F-104S was developed by Lockheed for the Italian air force, designed to carry AIM-7 Sparrow missiles. The Italian’s were the last operators of the Starfighter, their last
