The F-106s on alert. Griffiss AFB, 8 November 1985. These alert birds are parked outside while maintenance is being performed on the Alert hangars. Note that there are no pitot or inlet covers , and the power carts are hooked up and out of the way. Note, too, the Missile Caskets on the trailer to the right. In the background, the Griffiss AFB Weapons Storage Area can be seen with its guard tower and concertina wire topped fences. The Weapons Storage Area is across the ramp in the picture.
