This is Hamilton AFB in Marin County, California in 1970 and the airplane is a visiting Convair F-102 "Delta Dagger" interceptor belonging to the Idaho Air National Guard. Note the air intakes have been papered-over to keep hot dog wrappers, pop cans and various other airshow debris from damaging the engine when the pilot cranks up to fly home. It's too bad my mother didn't have a better camera. Almost every photo she took with her Instamatic 110 was off-center to the right!
