Title: Convair F-102 Delta Dagger

The F-102 was the world’s first supersonic all-weather jet interceptor and the USAF’s first operational delta-wing aircraft. The F-102 made its initial flight on Oct. 24, 1953 but the initial design had numerous problems, the most serious of which was the inability to exceed Mach One in level flight. The aircraft was re-designed incorporating the new “area rule” theory developed by Richard Whitcombe and in conjunction with a more powerful engine exceeded Mach 1.2 on its first flight. The aircraft became operational in 1956 and 873 were eventually produced.

To maximise value, this title contains the USAF flight manuals for both the F-102 Delta Dagger and the later F-106 Delta Dart. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and include any colour pages.
