The Sound of freedom F-104 starfighter
History of F-104
First of all The F-104 Starfighter is for a lot of people in western Europe “The Sound of Freedom” because it was the backbone of Europe’s defense. During the sixties, seventies and early eighties its sound and appearance is also legendary. This brilliant design of the famous “Kelly Johnson”, originally designed as a interceptor, but in Europe widely used for Air-To-Ground attacks. In some countries a special RF version was used as low flying reconnaissance plane.
A foundation named “Dutch Starfighter Foundation” (DSF) has its goal set to get the F-104 D-8114 running again complete with an engine even more a reason to buy the shirt. The next goal will be a flying species. The flying species would be perfect if it would be an TF-104, but thats for later.
First step is a F-104G in a top shape to get it up and running (not flying). For this achievement there’s a need of money, a lot of money. Money collected by sponsors, gifts and merchandise. This T-shirt is one of the merchandise items that will be used to raise funds.
Supporting the Dutch Starfighter Foundation
To give there financial balance a kick Peter van Stigt, a famous dutch Photoshop artist with a specialty in “airplanes”, has contributed a bunch of beautiful artist impressions of the beautiful F-104.
To get a step up, warbirdtees.com and Peter van Stigt teamed up and designed a LIMITED EDITION “One-O-Four ever” T-shirt. 85% of the profit goes to the DSF (Dutch Starfighter Foundation”)
