Today we got the terrible news that the F-104G 25+14, once preserved on a pedestal at the Decimomannu barracks has been cut in pieces by a local scrap dealer.
The reason was likely the bad shape (corrosion) of the aircraft which was not looking very well anymore around now.
It is sad that the aircraft was cut in pieces in stead of attempting to restore it.
Thanks to Roberto Meloni.
