This red piece of cloth is put on the missile's igniters and needs to removed before flight to release them...

Anyone that flies or has flown a F-104 is a brave man. It's basically a missile with stubby wings added as an afterthought! If the engine stalled it immediately fell like a rock. It's kinda like someone putting a F-10 M5 drivetrain in a 60s Chevelle with a stock suspension. Faster than hell but when something goes wrong it gets real bad real fast!
