D-8318 on pole at Leeuwarden


Recently the F-104G D-8318 has been erected on the pole at the entrance of Leeuwarden Air Base. It carries 323 squadron badges on both sides of the tail. Sadly the team could not yet find side winder "skates" (centerline carried sidewinder rails) to give the aircraft a more interceptor appearance. Hopefully these will be added in the future. The aircraft really looks stunning in its new paint and markings. (Photo thanks to Frank Swinkels)
