F-106A Delta Dart
USAF, 5th FIS, "Spittin' Kittens"
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”.
The 317th Convair F-106A Delta Dart built was c/n 8-31-19 serial 59-0130 / AD152 and was
delivered to the USAF on September 1, 1960. The 5th FIS “Spittin Kittens” was the last unit
59-0130 was assigned. The “Spittin Kittens” got their name from the 2 lynx cub mascots they
adopted. In 1985 the F-15 began replacing the F-106s and this aircraft was sent to storage
and then converted to a drone and survived. Next it was used by NASA before being sent to
AMARC in 1998.
1/72 scale pre-finished.
