MM6830 moved to new destination

MM6830 F-104S ASA as F-104C alike 'FG-903' Grenchen_Sep2012-c

The F-104S MM6830 which can be found preserved at the roundabout not far from the Grenchen airport, is currently dismantled. The wing mounting plates have been removed and the wings will be dismounted soon this week. The plan is that this aircraft will move to the Swiss Transport Museum in Lucerne were it will be preserved. It will very likely keep its current color scheme but we are not sure about that at this moment.

More information with video taken during the removal can be found here: https://www.grenchnertagblatt.ch/solothurn/grenchen/jahrzehntelang-thronte-er-auf-dem-kreisel-jetzt-ist-der-starfighter-endgueltig-weg-131973783
