The F-106 Delta Dart had a long and illustrious career at Edwards AFB. The prototype A-model made its first flight here on 26 Dec 56. On 15 Dec 59, Col Joe Rogers piloted as F-106 A to a world speed record of 1,525.695 mph (Mach 2.41) here. In Apr 58, the first two-seat F-106B completed its maiden flight here and later served as an ejection seat test vehicle at the AFFTC's 6511th Test Group at El Centro NAS, Ca. During the 1960s, F-106s were stationed at Edwards as a detachment of the 329th Fighter Interceptor Squadron at George AFB. This aircraft is displayed in 329th markings because it was assigned to that unit for a short time in the early 1960s. The AFFTC Museum acquired the aircraft in 2003 after it had been in storage at Davis-Monthan AFB for many years. It was previously flown in the drone program at Tyndall AFB, Fl. Restoration was faithfully completed by the men and women of the 412th Equipment Maintenance Squadron with paint applied by the squadron's Corrosion Control Shop.
