"Stubby" Lockheed XF-104 53-7786 during taxi testing, Rogers Dry Lake, Edwards, 1954.


  1. It's a beautiful airplane. Not the best warplane, and a bitch to fly, but still a thing of beauty.

  2. I disagree. It was a wonderful airplane to fly. I don't know a single 104 pilot who didn't love to fly the 104 and I know a lot of them. I would hardly call it "stubby" either. It is the sleekest fighter, ever.
