    not to be incommodated by the kerosene fumes Impressive crossing National colours drag chute for the final of the demonstrtion The Belgian stars of the one O four S BAP During your shows you did manage to fly your 104 in a handkerchief although the F 104 was not designed for aerobatics How did you achieve this Slivers The main principle was to avoid dead times during our demonstrations Our precursors shutted off the shaker kicker warning system This system called the APC auto pitch control countered the annoying tendency of the 104 to pitch up When we started our demonstrations a directive forbidded to switch off this system bearing in mind the accident of Susse Jacobs So we trained to fly right to the limits of the kicker We were so fixed on this that after hours of demonstrations we could almost predict to the second when the kicker would go off It was all this training that enabled us to show what the F 104 was really capable of S BAP Did you have any system to synchronise your crossings Slivers No everything was done visually One of our first shows was at Schaffen As the runway there was a grassstrip we had not any mark During our demo we did find ourselve across each other and as this situation was too dangerous we called it off and Palmer left the zone I flew on solo To avoid such problems in the future a line made up of white panels was installed on airfields without a concrete runway S BAP What was your crossing speed Slivers Normal crossings were done at 400 knots 740 km h each Crossing turns of 360 at about 320 knots 590 km h and crossings with the landing gear down at 300 knots 550 km h S BAP What was the distance between your aircraft and how did you manage to maintain this distance Slivers The separation varied from some ten meters to two meters At the beginning we took the width of the runway each flying on one side Our crossings were too distant so we decided to take each an edge of the runway as axis Still too distant to our taste so we then decided to take just one runway edge as our display axis with one flying overhead the runway and the other flying overhead the grass To confirm our position we radiocalled left concrete or left grass S BAP Did you never frightened yourselve during your crossings Slivers Certainly yes It was at Wevelgem The weather was not too good and the visibility a mere 2 kilometers During the crossings we really needed to search visual contact and at a given moment we were flying right at each other To avoid the collision I pushed the stick forward and Palmer pulled hard on his conforming exactly to what we always briefed This highlighted that our flying always had to be rigourous and we had to have complete confidence
