Long Description:

This is a F-104D Starfighter on display at George Izay Park in Burbank, California near Burbank Airport. The F-104 was built by Lockheed, who were formerly based in Burbank. (Lockheed has since moved to Georgia.)

The F-104 was the first Mach-2 production jet and broke a number of speed, altitude and climb records. The prototype plane was built in 1954 and production models were built until 1979.

No serial number noted on this one. I believe this was a shell built by Lockheed for the Burbank display and not a functional plane or was a prototype D model. It bears Lockheed markings, not military. I like the fact that it is displayed in accent position.
