56-771_918O_Amman_dec16

At Amman there are plans to restore an old F-104A Starfighter.
The aircraft was already stored for some time and is still complete although needs attention.
Professional assistance is requested by a team to check if the aircraft could be made taxy-capable since they also have a complete engine in storage with 0 flying hours. Eventually the plan is to make the aircraft flyworthy again but we believe that would be a second step.
The aircraft is believed to be the old 918 code "O" USAF 56-771 which was obtained from the USAF in August 1972.
It flew with nr 9 Squadron at Amman till it retired July 1st, 1977 after almost 5 years in service.
Since then it stayed at Amman.
