The Lockheed F-104C came about as the result of Tactical Air Command (TAC) decision that the F-104A wasn’t a capable supersonic tactical strike fighter. The F-104C was equipped with an in-flight refueling probe to extend its range and was capable of delivering a tactical nuclear weapon. Put into service during the Vietnam War the USAF realized the F-104C wasn’t the aircraft for Vietnam and was replaced with the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II. The surviving F-104Cs were transferred to the 198th TFS of the Puerto Rico Air National Guard.

F-104S Starfighter MM6934 was delivered to the Italian Air Force in September 1978 and assigned to the 36th Wing. In June 1984 MM6934 was assigned to 5 ° Stormo as 5-37. In April 2000 the aircraft was converted into an ASA-M and after several more moves the aircraft was assigned to 10° Gruppo/9° Stormo on November 11, 2001. On October 11, 2004 MM6934 of 9° Stormo completed its final flight as 9-51 having flown 3,836 hours. In 2014 the aircraft became a monument located at Grazzanise.
