From 1950 to August 1954 the US Air Force 526th FIS was known as the 526th Fighter-Bomber squadron. In 1954, along with the re-designation, the 526th mission also changed to air defense of central Europe flying the all-weather, rocket carrying F-86D Sabre. In 1960 the 526th FIS was reassigned to the 86th Air Division at Ramstein AB and equipped with the F-102 which they flew until 1968. F-102 Delta Dagger #61210 was originally delivered to the 27th FIS in 1962 and was converted to a drone and shot down in 1979.Opening canopy

The Convair F-102 Delta Dagger was an interceptor aircraft built as part of the backbone of the U.S. Air Force’s air defenses in the late 1950s. Entering service in 1956, its main purpose was to intercept invading Soviet bombers. The F-102 was the first operational supersonic interceptor and Delta-wing fighter of the USAF. It had an internal weapons bay and could carry both guided missiles and rockets.
The official name for the Convair F-102 was "Delta Dagger", but it was commonly referred to as the “Deuce”. The F-102 was used in the Vietnam War for fighter patrols and bomber escort. A total of 889 had been built when production ended in 1958.
