Historical Note:


Preorder Expected Arrival - DEC 2022


The Convair F-106 Delta Dart began as an advanced version of the F-102 but because of so many modifications and design changes it became a new aircraft with its own designation. It was designed as a missile carrying all-weather interceptor against Soviet bombers and served in this role from the 1960s until the 1980s. The F-106A as well as the F-106B two-seat trainer served with 15 fighter interceptor squadrons starting in 1959. The aircraft was rarely referred to as the Delta Dart but was commonly called the “6”.

F-106A Delta Dart 90053 MSN 8-24-182 was completed in early 1960 and delivered to the 318th Fighter Interceptor Squadron / 325th FW at McChord AFB, WA on April 5, 1960. Over the years the aircraft spent time with the 498th FIS, 84th FIS and in September 1974 became the property of the 87th FIS “Red Bulls” at Sawyer AFB, MI. On August 10, 1983 90053 was sent to MASDC as FN014 in 1991 became a drone and was shot down at Tyndall AFB, FL May 18, 1994.

The Ultimate Supersonic Interceptor - F-106 Delta Dart (11:01)
Subscribe to Dark Skies: https://bit.ly/dark5skies New Merch (my brother is working on more designs!): https://teespring.com/stores/darkskies The Convair F-106 Delta Dart was the main all-weather interceptor jet of the United States Air Force for almost 20 years. Designed from scratch as the so-called [QUOTE] "Ultimate Interceptor," pilots would reportedly fight each other to fly it. It had one mission, and it had to be fast. With a sleek body and missiles tucked in an internal weapons bay, it could reach speeds over 1,500 miles-per-hour to intercept the Soviet Union's long-range bombers. And, as one bizarre incident would show... it could sometimes fly and land on its own. - As images and footage of actual events are not always available, Dark Skies sometimes utilizes similar historical images and footage for dramatic effect.
