As already mentioned earlier the team at the Kalamazoo Air Museum had a plan to restore their F-104C into a more realistic outfit and choose the late 50s TAC style.
Because the fuselage of the aircraft should need extensive work they decided to choose a paintscheme in stead of bare metal.
The aircraft repaint was finished this summer and the aircraft looks very neat.
