I remember the CF-104s at the Mildenhall Air Fetes in the 80s. There were 4, sometimes 5, and I'm pretty sure that at least at one point they were billed as the "Tiger Romeos".

A great display; very close formation, opposition pairs and an entry at low level from behind the crowd (this was pre-Ramstein, of course )which made everybody jump.

Edit: This thread says that the names changed over the years, possibly depending on which squadron of the Baden-Sollingen wing were providing the team at the time. Tiger Romeos were actually in the late 70s. Time whizzes by... like a Starfighter, I guess!
