Lockheed F-104C Starfighter - No.3 Squadron, Royal Australian Air Force, 1967

 

The RAAF's search for a Sabre replacement led to a joint evaluation team from the Departments of Air and Supply visiting Europe and North America during 1960 with the Lockheed F-104C Starfighter eventually edging out the Dassault Mirage and Saab J35 Draken in a closely fought contest.
