In my humble opinion the F104 Starfighter is along with the Super Constellation, the Spitfire, the Concord and the achingly gorgeous Bugatti 100P one of the most beautiful aircraft ever built.
But this beauty came with a price, 270 of 2000 built were lost, earning the F104 the nickname: Tentpeg, or Sargfighter (ger. coffinfighter) or more ominously: The widow maker.
