F-104G taking off from Edwards AFB for the movie "The Right Stuff" 1982

Two Starfighter were used for "The Right Stuff". To make them interchangeable, the last two tail numbers were painted out,
so only 132 was picked up by the camera. The pilots were Lt Col Robert Patterson (USAF) and Oberstleutnant Heinrich Thueringer (GAF)
Two F-104G from the 69th TFTS at Luke AFB were 63-13243 and 63-13269.
