Convair QF-106A Delta Dart (8) - USA - Air Force

This man-rated Delta Dart drone is taxying on the south parallel for a Runway 11 takeoff after a 3 day stay at Dobbins because of Hurricane Erin. The last operational user before drone modification is clearly seen in the yellow and blue markings on the rudder: The 5th Fighter Interceptor Sqn. at Minot AFB, ND. The reason the rudders weren't painted over with the same International Orange color as the rest of the tail was because the rudder would have to have been re-balanced with the added weight.
