F-106 Refueling

A trio of Convair F-106s refuel from a KC-135.

The Convair F-106 Delta Dart was the primary all-weather interceptor aircraft for the United States Air Force from the 1960s through the 1980s. Designed as the so-called “Ultimate Interceptor”, it has proven to be the last dedicated interceptor in USAF service to date. It was gradually retired during the 1980s. In this picture, a threesome of Darts take on fuel from a KC-135.
