Given information is based on best available references, any proven correction is welcome!
915 56-0843, destroyed at Ramtha, on a highway roundabout; 3232'6.42"N 360'12.29"E
November 21, 2011 the preserved F-104A on the entrance of the city of Ramtha has been destroyed and burned by rioters!
The riots are a result of a death of a 19 year old inmate who committed suicide and the people of Ramtha are blaming police brutality for his death!
Looking at the damage on the aircraft it most likely will be taken away and scrapped.
 
note: It appears that 56-779 received the tail section of 56-780 sometime while in USAF service. The visible sign of identifying an aircraft is by the serial number on the tail so after this happened, our aircraft #779 effectively became #780.
