This short story we received from Claudio Collenz a Colonel pilot (ret) of the Italian Air Force. The photo shows RF-104G MM6633 code 3-26.
This photo was made during my 2nd period in Villafranca AB, during the period from 1981 till 1988.
My 1st period was from 1971 till 1975, and always I have flown the F-104G.
In between from 1976 till 1981 I was I.P. on the Fiat G-91/T.
This photo remembers me to the period when I flew "Solo Display" for my 132°Sqn. FBA , very nice to remember this, especially for Pilots and Crews, we were one big family!!!
Now time is changing, but I hope for all Pilots here, looking at all photos, we are proud for what we've done, in all weather conditions and everywhere.
Thanks again STARFIGHTER, we'll never forget YOU!!!!
Name: Colonel Pilot(Ret.) Claudio "ICE" COLLENZ
