    Delivery of an F-104B to the Aerospace Museum

Delivery of an F-104B to the Aerospace Museum. 

The F-104B (company Model 283-93-03) was a two-seat, dual-control, combat trainer version of the F-104A.  A second seat was provided underneath an extended canopy, with each crewmember being provided with a separate hatch which opened to the left.  A full set of controls was provided for both crewmembers.

It was intended that the F-104B, two seater, would have the same performance and combat capability of the F-104A single seater.  However, in order to provide space for the second seat, the 20-mm cannon of the single seater had to be removed, some internal electronics had to be relocated, the internal fuel capacity had to be reduced from 897 to 750 US gallons, and the nosewheel once again had to be made to retract rearwards.  however, the provision for the two underwing and two wingtip drop tanks were retained, boosting total fuel capacity by 730 US gallons.  The armament was limited to a pair of wingtip mounted AIM-9 Sidewinders, although the AN/ASG-14T-1 fire control system was retained.
