The RCAF received their first CF-104 in March 1962. Although originally designed as a supersonic interceptor the Canadian Air Force used it primarily for low level strike and reconnaissance. The Canadian version of the F-104 was capable of carrying a ventral mounted Vinten Vicon pod with 4 cameras inside for reconnaissance picture taking. On September 4, 1963 number 12900 was the 200th and final CF-104 produced and entered service on January 10, 1964. The CF-104 retired from service in 1985 when it was replaced by the CF-18 Hornet. Over the 25 years of active service 110 aircraft were lost to accidents earning it nicknames like “Widow Maker” and “Lawn Dart”. The RCAF CF-104 probably had the most flying time of any variant with an average of 6,000 hours per plane over their life time compared to the Luftwaffe’s 3,000 hours.

CF-104 serial 12868 c/n 683A-1168 went to the RCAF on December 11, 1963. The aircraft was assigned to 2 Wing / 1 Air Division and then 1 Wing until 1968 when it was put into storage. CF-104s were reserialed in June 1970 so 12868 became 104868. In 1971 the aircraft was reactivated and in 1978 104868 was with 441 and then 421 Squadrons. For 1981-82 the aircraft received a red and white paint scheme nicknamed “Flying Coke Bottle” or “Flying Coke Can”. March 2, 1984 a hangar fire destroyed the aircraft.
