Yup, I agree, Tom! I've seen some photos of a 104 demo group flying at airshows, but I'm not sure how hold the pictures were and if they are still flying. Since we're talking about F-104s, have you ever seen pictures of the F-104RB Red Baron? It was built by Darryl Greenamyer and sponsored by the Red Baron Flying Service of Idaho Falls, Idaho in the 1970's. They towed it in a parade one time in my home town, and I think that is when I fell in love with Starfighters. It was a beautiful airplane! Here are some links if you're interested:

Red Baron also sponsored a P-51 modified for racing. It was also a great looking airplane! Check it out here:

I did get to see it fly, and it was very impressive. Thanks, again, Tom!
