The Starfighter was once described as ‘a delight to fly, but
one mistake and it will kill you’. It is one of the world’s fastest fighters
with a top speed of Mach 2.2 and a service ceiling of 58,000 feet. First
delivered to the USAF in 1958 it was also sold to the German, Greek, Italian,
Turkish and Italian Air Forces. It could carry a variety of air to air, and air
to surface missiles and was powered by a single General Electric J79 turbojet
that developed 17,900lbs of thrust with afterburner. The Italian Air Force
continued to fly it into the 21st Century.
