The Air Defence Competition evaluated ground crews, pilots and radar operators. Pilots and aircraft would be situated at each end of the runways and when radar detected possible threats a scramble was issued. The length of time it took to launch aircraft and intercept an intruder was recorded. F-104G c/n #683D-8024 was assembled by Fokker in Holland and completed its first flight on September 13, 1962. It was delivered as JA+111 to JG 71 "Richthofen" at Wittmund Air Base on July 17, 1963. The aircraft was withdrawn from use in December 1973 for spare parts and eventually scrapped.

The F-104 Starfighter was a revolutionary design with short razor-sharp wings. It was the first aircraft to be able to maintain Mach 2 not just in short bursts. The Starfighter shattered speed and rate of climb records that still are impressive today. This extremely high speed earned the plane the nickname “The Missile With A Man In It”. Because of financial considerations 15 or more countries purchased the F-104. The Starfighter flew with the USAF in 1958 and the last airplane was decommissioned in Italy in 2004.
