Alberta Aviation Museum Seeks Donations for F-104 Acquisition Project

. December 4, 2011 . 1 Comment

The Alberta Aviation Museum has located an appropriate F-104 Starfighter (2) seater and is moving forward with acquiring the aircraft for restoration and exhibit.

This is one of the few remaining available and is identical to the (2) seat version used in the Royal Canadian Air force and Canadian Armed Forces. The aircraft is complete (less armaments) right through radios, radar to the engine and its systems.

The broker has agreed to hold the aircraft till December 14th, 2011 so we are in a race to raise the funding before the aircraft is made available to other parties.

Cost of acquisition (delivered to Edmonton) and restoration is expected to be approx $70,000.00 Canadian.

    What a great reclaimation project for our museum! I spent the best 3 years of my 26 year career in the RCAF working on these beauties as a maintenance technician. The fact that those 3 years were spent in the Black Forest of Germany certainly added to the excitement and pride of purpose of the job at hand.

    Please accept my donation for this project.
