The Convair F-102 Delta Dagger was designed to be an interceptor aircraft and act as the core of USAF air defenses in the late 1950s. The F-102 first appeared in service in 1956 with the task to intercept Soviet bombers. The official name for the F-102 was Delta Dagger but the most common term used was Deuce. There was 889 F-102As manufactured when production ended in September 1958. Primary Role: Interceptor Aircraft.

In 1966 the Minnesota ANG 179th FIS “Bulldogs” / 148th FG re-equipped with the F-102 Delta Dagger. In 1970 the unit won the “William Tell” weaponry competition earning them the nickname “The Aces of Deuces”. F-102A 56-1488 was first delivered to the 438th FIS and spent time with the 59th FIS and in 1970 moved to the Minnesota ANG 179th FIS.
