This F-106 Delta Dart still looks great at almost 60 years of age! They were introduced into USAF service as air defence interceptors beginning in 1959. They retired from the USAF and were given to the Air National Guard units in many states. They retired from military service in 1988. NASA used their jets until 1998. These jets were very fast at 1,544 mph! They used an internal weapons bay with various air to air missiles. Around 340 F-106 fighters were built in various models and configurations.
