Travis AFB
Fairfield,California

Travis is where I started my tour with the Air Force.

I worked on the F -102 then.

The Convair F-102 Delta Dagger was an American interceptor
aircraft built as part of the backbone of the
United States Air Force's air defenses in the late 1950s.
Entering service in 1956, its main purpose
was to intercept invading Soviet bomber fleets.
The aircraft's development was long and troubled, and by the early 1960s,
it was being supplemented by F-101 Voodoos, replaced by
F-106 Delta Darts and later by F-4 Phantom IIs.
Many of the F-102s were transferred to United States Air National Guard
duty by the mid-to-late 1960s, and the plane left service
altogether in 1976. (Wikipedia)

You can imagine the fun we had working on it…
