F-104D-15-LO On a Stick

An actual Lockheed F-104D-15-LO Starfighter aircraft, "Spirit of Burbank" (AF #571334 [construction #283-5046]) with two pilots posed as taking off from the grassy area along the boulevard. Lockheed Aircraft was headquartered in Burbank for 66 years. This is a great photo opportunity. Can be seen from the street.
