This Starfighter was first seen on display here in Oct 1986. The serial carried is definitely false (F-104B 57-1312 was delivered to Pakistan), but there has been much debate about this aircraft's actual identity. It is almost certain now that it is in fact 57-1330 c/n 483-5042 (based on a gun bay and old cockpit canopy combination seen only on that aircraft before), but it may also be 57-1314 which was last seen stored at Mojave, CA in Jan 1978.
