Hobby Master 1:72 Air Power Series Diecast Model

Convair F-106A Delta Dart – #59-0043, “Spirit of Atlantic City", 119th Fighter-Interceptor Squadron, New Jersey Air National Guard, 1988

1:72 Scale.  Length: 11.75".  Wingspan: 6.25"

In February 1960 the 211th F-106A Delta Dart No. 59-0043 was completed and in March 1960 it was assigned to the 27th FIS at Loring AFB in Maine. In July 1971 it was transferred to the 83rd FIS at Loring before leaving for Dover Air Force Base, Delaware. On January 24, 1973, 59-0043 began a fifteen and a half year stay with the 119th FIS/177th FIG of the New Jersey Air National Guard in Atlantic City and named 'Spirit of Atlantic City'. In 1988 the aircraft was sent to storage and later converted to a drone, but in 1998 it was given a reprieve and sits on “Celebrity Row” at Davis-Monthan AFB as the last airworthy F-106.

The F-106 Delta Dart was a supersonic all-weather interceptor aircraft used by the US Air Force from the 1960s to the 1980s. Its primary mission was the defense of the United States from an invasion by Soviet bombers. The F-106 began as an advanced variant of the F102 Delta Dagger but, it featured so many modifications and design changes that it became a new aircraft with its own designation. The F-106 was similar to the F-102 in that it had a virtually identical wing, was designed without a gun, or provision to carry bombs, and carried air-to-air guided missiles in an internal weapons bay for streamlined supersonic flight.

First flown on December 26, 1956, the F-106 entered service with the USAF in June 1959. The F-106A as well as the F-106B two-seat trainer served with USAF and Air National Guard units until 1988 in the continental USA, Alaska and Iceland, as well as brief periods in Germany and South Korea. Although contemplated for use in the Vietnam War, the F-106 never saw combat nor was it exported to foreign customers. The aircraft was commonly referred to as the “Six”.
