I've just seen the topic, a german television movie from 2015:
http://www.imdb.com/...f_=nm_flmg_dr_4
Though very little flying scenes and just few scenes with static F-104's is it a nice introduction to the problems with Starfighters falling out of the sky, seen with the pilot widows eyes. Especially since most of their deceased husbands was blamed for the incidents.
In this modern times many should be able to stream this down to their computer or possible directly to the TV set wich I hereby recommend!

Whomever produced the artwork for this movie's box should get an award. The emotion in her eyes and the body language is compelling. The sinister F-104 in the background is a perfect foe waiting for her man to opt for it instead of her. Brilliant!

Not being snarky...just appreciating good marketing! :)

One of the big faults on this forum is that the headline isnt to edit :-(

BTW: The easiest way for a normal citicen to achieve a Starfighter in the German 60's, was said to buy an acre of land - And just wait :-)

As I am now, I changed the translation to Kiwi's correct one and the wrong German spelling (only a transfer error, no need for Armand to learn something). Sorry for the delay.
