The Convair F-106 Delta Dart began as an advanced version of the F-102 but 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”.



In 1975 the 125th FG Florida ANG (FLANG) converted from the F-102 to the F-106 Delta
Dart. One of the new aircraft had tail number 8076 so when the U.S. 1976 Bicentennial
approached the unit decided to give 8076 a special red, white and blue tribute paint scheme
along with the “City of Jacksonville” painted on the fuselage. This paint scheme received a
lot of national and international attention in aviation magazines. The aircraft wore this scheme
for the entire year and took part in every bicentennial celebration in Jacksonville.
