(4-43) at Bitburg AB it made a very hard landing, collapsing the landing gear, and skidded over the runway on October 19, 1988; LtCol Fabio Landi and LtCol Paolo Telesca did not eject and were safe; transported to Alenia again where it arrived December 12, 1988. It was declared damaged beyond economical repair with a total of 2.192 flying hours and put on storage at Caselle and was used for spare parts and likely an instructional and check airframe for the TF-104G-M modifications. It was last noted at Caselle on September 1, 1999 just when the TF-104G-M modification development had been finished. In July 2001 the fuselage was seen at the dump of Grosseto AB and it stayed there at least until September 21, 2004. It was not seen since and probably scrapped, withdrawn from use with 2.192 flight hours.

TF-104G-M

notes:
A total of 30 TF-104G have been acquired by the AMI. With deliveries beginning in 1965, 24 were bought as training aircraft for the F-104G and RF-104G procured in the early sixties. The first 12 were MAP aircraft built by Lockheed in the USA and those were model 583D. Another 12 had been built by Lockheed and were reassembled by Fiat in Torino and were model 583H.
In 1984 the remaining 19 two-seater were supplemented by 6 ex German Air Force aircraft.
From 1997 onwards 15 TF-104G have been converted to TF-104G-M (M for "Modificato") standard.
MM54254 "4-36" served as the prototype.
The dual "M" differs from the F-104S/ASA/ASA-M in that, for instance, it lacks the satellite navigation system (GPS).
When the required aircraft have been converted, the remaining TF-104G were gradually withdrawn from use.
The exception to this rule was MM54233 "4-30", which remained in service as a G model (with RSV).
20°Gruppo became part of 4°Stormo (same airbase) in 1985. Before that the 20°Gruppo was autonomous.
After 1985 the numbers became higher than 24 not to be confused with the lower ones owned by the 9°Gruppo, until that date the only squadron of 4°Stormo.
