    Excellent, good to see this warbird has been restored to her former glory.
    I was one of 18 Techs seconded to 1 CAG (4Wing) @ Baden Soellingen in the 1970’s and was an Electrical Mechanic with # 1 crew. I can remember this aircraft being on our line at least twice for checks.
    In my opinion the CF-104 was a great aircraft to work on and to quote Capt Mark E Fairley she was the Cadillac of the skies. Well done to all involved in the restoration project.
