The F-106 Delta Dart was a supersonic all-weather interceptor aircraft used by the US Air Force from the 1960s through the 1980s. It began as an advanced version of the F-102 Delta Dagger but, it included 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 was never used in combat nor was it exported. The aircraft was commonly referred to as the “Six”.
