The F-104 model was designed and fabricated by the Air Force Flight Dynamics Laboratory and incorporated an unusual force and motion sensing system utilizing an internal dummy model with duplicate mass, inertia, and c.g. location. Longitudinal dynamic tests were performed with this model up through the transonic speed range. The results are evaluated with respect to the operation of the dynamic testing system and to the performance of the dummy model for measuring motion and canceling inertial loads.
