Uncle Tom's plane

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, Uncle Tom was in the Air Force! Actually, he was in the Air Force from 1964-1968 and he was stationed here in Merced, CA and here is where he met my Auntie Karen. :)
While he was here he worked on the Convair F-106 Delta Dart as part of the 456th FIS, stationed at Castle AFB. I took loads of pictures of the children next to the Interceptor. The Interceptor could reach speeds of Mach 2 and saw service during the Vietnam War and was used to patrol the West Coast during the Cold War. (per the visitor's guide)
