Blue skys and dry runways, Mike 189. Mike Cred - 2008-02-18 02:47:00 The B-58 was undoubtly and by far the greatest the country ever produced. 188. Barry Frank - 2008-02-11 17:00:22 You know I am such a fanatic about the Cold War. No matter how many times I watch the movie Failsafe I always assumed that they were flying a B-58 Hustler. Or as they portray it in the movies a Vindicator. But now after studying the websites more closely I see that the pilot and copilot did not sit tandem in the front cockpit. They actually sat parallel to one another and each had their own ejection pod. I guess this stuck in my mind because my late father brought home a B-58 toy version of the aircraft and it had a single ejection pod like the F-111. This happened when I was a young child. Could you shed some light on this or is this a trainer jet that I am looking at? In the meantime you guys were so far ahead of your time. Give me back my Cold War. General Patton was right. Machines with no men, where’s the glory in that? What an incredible aircraft and the men that flew it. Yours truly, Dr. Strangelove THERE WAS ONLY ONE PILOT IN THE B-58.. BEHIND HIM WAS THE NAVIGATOR AND THEN THE DSO (DEFENSIVE SYSTEMS OPERATOR).. EACH WING ORIGINALLY HAD 5 TB-58 TRAINERS. THAT’S WHAT YOU’RE THINKING OF.. IN THAT VERSION THERE WAS A 2ND PILOT POSITION INSTALLED BEHIND THE PILOT, THERE WAS NO NAVIGATOR AND THEN THE DSO. THE TB VERSIONS HAD THE ORIGINAL EJECTION SEATS (NO CAPSULES). 187. Paul Hartman - 2008-01-29 00:45:33 305th HSG 1964 - 1966. CBR Team member. Great site, thanks for the memories. 186. Bob Leander - 2008-01-28 02:37:24 ! was assigned to the 43rd bomb wing from 1962 through 1966. Worked in the 43rd FMS egress shop. 185. sgt Ed Owens - 2008-01-21 19:20:44 I was stationed as a medic at Bunker Hill AFB in the mid 60’s. I did not get as close to the to the plane as I would have liked. We in the base hospital liked to think that we helped keep the men flying. It was quite a while ago, but I do remember Col. Johnson. Great site, keep up the good work. 184. Jim C. - 2008-01-18 12:06:31 Great site. Thank you for your service to the country. 183. Ralph Butcher - 2008-01-18 00:29:06 Darrell, Great site. How come no reference to your Caribou days? Ha, Ha, Ralph 182. Don Teed - 2008-01-17 19:53:57 Great website. What a magnificent airplane! Thanks for sharing it with us. 181. Rob - 2008-01-12 00:50:40 Great, stuff Thanks

180. Dan Dryer - 2007-12-27 04:56:24 Great site - I built the model kit in about 1962 - think it was a Revelle. 179. Sean Tracy - 2007-12-21 01:03:19 I build model aircraft kits and the Hustler is next on the list. But can someone explain how the fuel/weapons pod was configured? I can’t seem to grasp how a nuke can be carried in a fuel tank! BTW, the Hustler is nothing short of awesome!!! TAKE A LOOK AT THE HUSTLER ANNEX LINK ON MY WEB SITE. THE FIRST PAGE SHOWS THE 2-COMPONENT POD LYING ON THE RAMP. THE UPPER PORTION CONTAINS EITHER A NUCLEAR WEAPON OR CEMENT BALLAST FOR CG PURPOSES AND A SMALL AMOUNT OF FUEL. THE LOWER PORTION HOLDS MOST OF THE FUEL AND FUEL LINES GO THROUGH THE UPPER PORTION TO REACH THE AIRCRAFT ITSELF 178. Col C Johnson - 2007-12-19 22:25:20 I was station at Carswell 1958-1962 ,North Africa 1962-1962 Bunker Hill AFN IN 1962-1965 and SEA 1965-1966. My frist few years I was Medic with Air Rescue.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
