Remarks: Target tow flight for the F-16 force.
Remarks: The end of an era: 18 January saw the last ever tow flight by a Starfighter in Dutch AF service. It made also the last working day of the pilot, who retired directly afterwards.
Remarks: During the summer of 1982 D-8066 was based at Leeuwarden as target tow aircraft. The large dart was attached to the left pylon, where the winch was at the right.
Remarks: In 1982 this Starfighter arrived at Leeuwarden for target tow duries. The winch equipment can be seen underneath the wing.
Remarks: Aviodrome Starrari seen from a different angle.
Remarks: The early sun on a cold morning, a recipe for a nice scenery.
Remarks: Normally during a target towing mission the darts were winched out and dropped afterwards. This F-104 had a problem causing the dart to stick underneath the wing. Landing with the dart still attached was a rough ride!
Remarks: This formation came in very low. Picture taken with 135 mm.
Remarks: Preserved at the SWWAPS Museum.
Remarks: MM6520 (3-44) Private collection sistem Tecno Cable
Remarks: After closure of Ypenburg the base has been transformed to a residential area. And the Starfighter has gone...
Remarks: This was one of the many Starfighters flying that day.
Remarks: After front line service the Starfighter soldiered on as a target tower. You can see the gun has been removed for this task.
