Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries

Two barks for yes.

And, important, an heating system must be provided for the F-104 pilot, else he would be frosen solid.  :o
I remember having read something about this concerning the real FICON tests.

I would think the "easiest" solution would be to plumb a line from the B-52's environmental system though the pylon and into the F-104 system via a valve that closes after the F-104 engine start and it's system comes online. 
Don't move!  You're surrounded by armed bastards!
