I was a member of the initial Operation Waterglass team in 1962. It was a highly classified mission and used F102's from several places. I don't know if all the Waterglass details have been declassified, so will not be specific regarding the home bases of the aircraft and personnel.

The following active duty units operated the Convair the F-102A and
TF-102's in Viet Nam and Thailand:

64th FIS/405th FW
82nd FIS/51st FW
509th FIS/405th FW

Cheers...Chris
I am very interested in reading your article. I participated in Operation Waterglass in 1962 and know quite a bit about it and the F102 in general.
