FX41 stripped to become flight simulator


The F-104G FX41 could be found in a very poor shape at Kleine Brogel for many years. Recently the Base Museum team has stripped and cut the aircraft. The nose section (forward part) has been cut off and will be used to act as a flight simulator. The wings have been removed and mounted on the FX61 also at Kleine Brogel and the wheeldoors will go the this F-104G as well. The aft hatch has become a "table'. Most of the rest of the aircraft was sold to a scrapping company. The end of one of the 2580 build F-104s in the world.

    The tail of this FX41 has been transported to Florennes AB to become some kind of monument…
