Product Description


Lithographic print, 20" x 30", L/E 450 Signed and numbered by the artist

F-106 When the painting was created in 1986 this F-106 of the 49th Fighter Interceptor Squadron at Griffiss AFB, New York had been flying for 30 years

Capable of speeds in excess of 1400 mph, two Convair F-106A "Delta Darts" and two subsonic Lockheed T-33 "T-Birds" of the 49th Fighter Interceptor Squadron, Griffiss AFB, New York, meet in a 1986 training intercept high in the cloudscape above upstate New York. The 49th FIS is proud to have been the last active duty Air Force Squadron to fly "The Six". First flown on 26 December 1956, the 106 had served three decades as one of America's most important manned interceptors.

The 49th's 60453, shown in this image, was the third F-106 built and had been flying for 30 years. The T-33s, which were developed from the F-80, the nation's first operational jet fighter, served the squadron faithfully as target and support aircraft. Both of these beautiful aircraft have long since been retired. They served our country well. *
