On July1, 1956 the 159th FIS expanded to a group level and became the flying squadron of the 125th FIG of the National Guard Bureau. In 1960 the 159th FIS was re-equipped from F-86 Sabres to the F-102 Delta Dagger. In 1968 the 125th FIG was relocated from Imeson Airport to the new Jacksonville International Airport where the F-102 flew until 1974 and replaced by the F-106 Delta Dart. F-102 0-61409 first belonged to the 61st FIS and then flew with ANG FIS units 157th, 146th, 159th and 179th before going to AMARC in 1970.

Convair F-102A Delta Dagger

The F-102 was first flown on October 24, 1953. This aircraft was the USAF's first delta-wing fighter, and was also the USAF's first operational supersonic interceptor. Its primary mission was to intercept Soviet bombers, though it was also used as a bomber escort and ground attack aircraft during the Vietnam War. F-102s served with the USAF until the mid to late 1960s, when many of them were transferred to the US Air National Guard. By 1973, many F-102s were being used as target drones for testing the Patriot missile system, and the type was officially retired from service in 1976.

Hobby Master's 1:72 scale F-102 Delta Dagger is a quality model with many fine features, skillfully designed and manufactured with modern techniques. The hinged canopy opens to reveal a pad-printed instrument panel and radar screen. The speed brake can be configured in the deployed position, and the landing gear and gear doors are constructed as subassemblies for quick and easy ground configuration. The solid metal wing is masterfully recreated with downturned leading edges, raised wingtips, razor thin wing fences and removable fuel tanks. The three segmented weapons bays are constructed as a one-piece subassembly, and the six Falcon missiles feature finely detailed trapeze mounts.
