Did you know that NORAD SAGE (Semi-Automatic Ground Environment) and ‪#‎USAF‬ AWACS controllers could actually 'fly' a Convair F-106 Delta Dart automatically from the moment of takeoff until final approach to target? The NORAD SAGE which comprised of two dozen IBM computers (each containing 50,000 vacuum tubes), linked by telephone lines and wireless, made the F-106 little more than a ‘flying dart’, designed to accelerate and shoot down Soviet bombers with guided/ or nuclear tipped rockets.
