The Canadair CF-104 Starfighter, a variant of the Lockheed F-104 Starfighter, was a high-speed, high-altitude fighter and reconnaissance aircraft operated by the Canadian Armed Forces. Built under license by Canadair, the CF-104 was a key component of Canada's military aviation during the Cold War.

Adapted for Canadian needs, the CF-104 was primarily used for tactical strike and reconnaissance missions. It was known for its exceptional speed and climb rate, courtesy of its powerful J79 turbojet engine and slender design. The aircraft was equipped with advanced avionics for navigation and targeting, and it could carry a mix of weapons, including bombs and missiles. Serving from the early 1960s into the late 1980s, the CF-104 saw extensive use in NATO operations. The Canadair CF-104 Starfighter's role in Canadian and NATO defense strategies, along with its performance as a strike and reconnaissance aircraft, make it a subject of great interest for military aviation enthusiasts and model collectors, particularly those interested in Cold War-era aircraft and Canadian military aviation history.
