Northrop F-89J Scorpion (3084)

Northrop F-89J Scorpion (3084)
The F-89 was an all-weather interceptor designed only for air defense. The "J" model was modified to carry the Genie air-to-air nuclear missile, shown here with the aircraft. It had a less than stellar career, primarily because it was underpowered. Built in 1954, it was retired from active Air Force service in 1959. This aircraft on display at the Castle Air Museum flew with the Air National Guard in Wisconsin and Iowa.
