    Background: Italian Defence Minister Giulio Andreatti - at present in Bonn to discuss NATO's forthcoming Lockhead Starfighter equipment - visited Noervenich air base, near Cologne, Dec 1, to inspect some of these aircraft stationed with West Germany's No 31 Fighter-Bomber Wing.

    Accompanied by the Wing Commander, Colonel Barkhorn, and US-trained Captain Flade, the Italian Minister had the controls explained to him in the cockpit and later saw a Starfighter in flight.

    NATO has now started on the production of more than 1,000 Lockhead F104 fighter aircraft. A new version - the F 104 G - will be built in Germany, in co-operation with Belgian and Dutch films. Italy is also taking part in the scheme, though with restricted funds. Reports say NATO officials believe the G model will be far superior to any other fighter in Europe.
