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, with the QF-106 drone conversions of the aircraft being used until 1998.

The F-106 served in the continental USA, Alaska, and Iceland, as well as brief periods in Germany and South Korea. In service, the F-106's official name, "Delta Dart," was rarely used, and the aircraft was universally known simply as the "Six."

"The F-106 is an affordable plane with above-average US performance, whose only weakness is a slightly dated electronics suite that a thrifty merc can upgrade at their leisure." Andrew "Sunshine" Talbot
