The Amazing (True) Story Of The F-106 With No Pilot!


 I've seen the pic below for several years now but I didn't know the story behind til I watched this recent video put together by AVweb. What a fascinating story - especially when you realize it was repaired and put back into service! Even more amazing to me, this exact aircraft is on display at the Air Force Museum, which I just spent three days at last weekend, but I didn't even realize it until just now as I was putting this post together!
 Hmpf. I guess I'll have to go back to the Air Force Museum again! : )
