As another poster mentioned, the F-102, was designed for "Continental Air Defence', hence the likely hood of V-N being in the rotation was slim. Ya ya ya - a few - tiny number went overseas.
I would agree with that.
However, flying jets has a hazard -- they sometimes crash.
How often do we read of a military jet or helicopter crashing with everyone killed -- normally many times a year.
If you get some bozo in your platoon/squad who is very inept, you might get shot or blown up.
For example, in the Clint Eastwood Heartbreak Ridge that was a foulup in the Recon Platoon that almost killed that football major that Clint Eastwood referred to as a cluster F***.
Screwups in the military with weapsons can kill you.
But if you fly jets, you might get killed by a bad mechanic...
Of course this is from a docent at the Evergreen Air Museum, in McMinnville, Oregon, who stated he had x,xxxx hours behind the stick of it and it's descendant the F-1xx.
Of course, I cut the National Guard boy no slack, he's trying to destroy my Nation.
