F-106 Delta Dart

Designed as a high altitude and high speed interceptor during the "Cold War", the F-106 Delta Dart was universally loved by all pilots who flew her. Known affectionately as "The Six", the Delta Dart still holds the official speed record for a single engine jet aircraft at 1525.96 MPH set by Major Joe Rogers in December of 1959. The F-106 featured an internal weapons bay in which the primary armament of AIM-4 Falcon missiles and AIR-2 "Genie" nuclear tipped rockets were carried. The Six served from 1959 to 1981 with the US Air Force and until 1988 with Air National Guard units.

Artist Mark Karvon has produced several variations of his basic F-106 print.  The first print in the series (below, on the far left)  is "The Six."   The other three prints show the aircraft with the markings of some of the squadrons that flew her.
