Convair F-102A Delta Dagger: “The luck of the ugly one,….”

The “Deuce” has never been, in my opinion at least, one of those jet fighter renowned by the beauty of its lines. The F-102A fuselage in particular is simply awful; tubby,  and with those afterthought bumps added near the arse. Only its pure delta wing and, to me, this startling cockpit canopy (also delta) design redeem the “Deuce” somehow…., barely.

“…. the pretty one envies”.

From this angle they certainly looked the part.
