Starfighters Inc will launch the satellites from their base in Florida
If you asked an eight-year-old to design a jet fighter, the end result might resemble the Lockheed F-104.
The F-104 looks less like a plane and more like a rocket with some extra bits added as an afterthought. Its long thin fuselage – with a tiny cockpit perched behind its pointy nose and short stubby wings either side – make it look state-of-the-art even today; one can only imagine how revolutionary it seemed when it was unveiled in the 1950s
The rest at the BBC.
I've always liked the F-104s. Hard to fly, but when I think futuristic aircraft they are what comes to mind.
Chance favors the prepared mind.
