Accidents – Incidents 2001

25 Nov 2001 TF-104G-M MM54233/RS-09 RSV/311gr AMI incident groundaccident
During very bad weather the roof of a big hangar at Pratica Di Mare Air Base collapsed damaging a number of RSV aircraft (311 Gruppo) including this TF-104G. It was damaged on its canopy. The AMI decided to declare the aircraft written off when considering the remaining flying hours and the fact it was not modified yet to TF-104G-M. Beneath two photos taken by Harry Prins at Pratica die Mare on May 29th, 2004, it was parked outside for already a reasonable time, clearly showing the sustained canopy damage.
