Designated Model 8-90, the first of four YF-102As (53-1787/1790) was rolled out at San Diego just 117 days after redesign had started. It was trucked out to Edwards AFB and took off on its maiden flight on December 20, 1954. On the next day, Mach 1 was easily exceeded, fully confirming the predictions of the area rule. It soon reached a top speed of Mach 1.2 in level flight. In addition, the aircraft could still keep on climbing after reaching 51,600 feet.

The first delivery to an operational Air Defense Command unit (the 327th Fighter Interceptor Squadron based at George AFB in California) took place on May 1, 1956, three years later than originally expected. The 327th FIS was activated on August 18, 1955, initially equipped with F-86Ds.

The popular name Delta Dagger for the F-102A was chosen in 1957. Between 1952 and 1957, five production contracts were awarded for a total of 875 F-102As.

By the end of 1958, 26 ADC squadrons were flying F-102As, and the F-102A had replaced the North American F-86D Sabre as the most numerous interceptor with the ADC. F-102As in service numbered 627, or about half of the total number of interceptors operated by the Air Defense Command. At the height of its service, 32 ADC units flew the F-102A. The last of 873 F-102As produced (serial number 57-909) was delivered in September of 1958.

During the early 1960s, the F-102A was gradually replaced in the ADC by the McDonnell F-101B Voodoo and the Convair F-106 Delta Dart. By mid-1961, the number of F-102As in service with the ADC was down to 221. However, by the end of 1969, with the exception of a squadron maintained in Iceland, all ADC F-102As had been transferred to the Air National Guard. The F-102As stationed in the Pacific had been withdrawn in December of 1969.

The only F-102As still in service with the USAF at the beginning of 1970 were all stationed overseas. At that time, the USAF still retained a few F-102A squadrons in Germany and the Netherlands. In the early 1970s, European-based F-102As were replaced by F-4 Phantoms. By the end of June 1973, the number of active F-102As had been reduced to ten.

The last ADC unit to operate the F-102A, the 57th FIS based at Keflavik in Iceland finally traded in its F-102As for McDonnell F-4C Phantoms in mid-1973.

One of my favorite bush trips was the Florida trip from the FSAcademy Voyager. This addon makes the trip along the keys even better. It now make the trip so much more immersive. Recommended buy if you spend anytime in the keys area.

very beautiful airport because i grew up here in this air force base shared between Portugal and US, probably one of the most important (strategically __________) US bases because all US military planes normally stop here due being in the middle of US and Europe so the pilots can rest and arm the planes, i grew up in this base (BA-4) because my father was an officer of Portuguese AF (from 80´s to 2000´s. This airport was very well done and it is an amazing place to explore, it has a very big runway for all type of planes, congrats tropicalsim, check my YT for reviews (guitargamery)

It lacks details and it's not like you can see much of it in real life, it could improve in those aspects
BORIS AUDIO WORKS - CIRRUS SR-22 SOUND SET - MSFS
David
Bought this for the XP11 SR22 and it was the best GA sound pack I've ever heard. Whilst the MSFS version is not quite as articulate or wide ranging in sounds as the XP11 version, it's still an absolute must have, if you enjoy the SR22 in MSFS, and so much better than the stock sounds. I wish they had got things like the AC / fan sounds working with the MSFS version, as they did with the XP11 version.

Die Bodenstruckture-
n könnten tatsächlich realistischer sein und einige Beschriftungen fehlen auch an den Airport Gebäuden. Ansonsten sehr gute detallierte Umsetzung mit fast liebevollen Details.Man sollte mal z.B. mit einem Follow me Car die Scenerie abfahren. Framerate sehr gut auf meinem PC System, auch die Seaplane Base ist gut nachgebildet.Kl-
eines Update durch S Design wäre gut

Oslo belongs to one of their best airports! Pricy but worth every euro!

All in all very detailed, although it hits performance a bit. Also some wrong scaling on buildings. The tower for instance looks way too short compared to real life. No airport interiors, which I hope will come with future updates.

It's well detailed and flies well, the developer's care is unmatched, for anyone who loves the golden age of aviation it's a great representation!
