F-106A Delta Dart 59-0062 MSN 8-24-191 was completed in April 1960 and on May 10, 1960 delivered to the 318th Fighter Interceptor Squadron / 325 FW at McChord AFB, WA. The aircraft spent time with the 498th FIS 57th FG in 1966 and then the 84th FIS / 1st FW in September 1968. In March 1981 59-0062 transferred to the 49th FIS at Griffiss AFB in New York. On July 9, 1987 the aircraft was sent to AMARC as FN159. In 1991 it was converted to a drone and shot down on November 12, 1993.
Designed as a refinement of the F102, the F106 was first flown on December 26th, 1956. 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”.
