on the fact that they could outrun the B-58 , at long as the fuel lasted..In the 60s the airspeed of the F-101 was classified as was the B-58. But who keeps score? I would still put my money on the Hustler. Great site, found it from a "Logbook" Magazine in a barbershop in Pensacola today. 29 November 06 79. Russell Miller - 2006-11-28 21:47:39 I remember seeing a B-58 explode in the air as I watched it from my boyhood home in Burkburnett, Texas. I think that it had just taken off from a runway in Frederick, Oklahoma. This would have been in the early 1960’s, I think. Does anyone know exactly when this happened or what the cause of the crash was determined to be? REPLY: I’M NOT SURE ABOUT THAT, RUSS. THERE WAS A B-58 LOST DUE TO CONTROL PROBLEMS SE OF LUBBOCK,TX ON 6/4/60. THE CREW HAD TO PUNCH OUT OF THAT ONE. 78. RICHARD A. CAMPBELL - 2006-11-24 03:02:36 REALLY A GREAT AIRPLANE.EASY TO FLY, GREAT TO REFUEL, BUT NOT ONE THAT YOU COULD NEGLECT AS IT WOULD BITE YOU IN A HEARTBEAT. 77. Chuck Aston - 2006-11-14 21:24:40 Awesome site! Thanks for making the pictures and information available to Hustler lovers everywhere!

I remember seeing the B=58 as a child - it’s still a very impressive airplane. I had told some much younger colleagues about the plane, and they were intrigued! 74. Jack A Powers Col,USAF (Ret) - 2006-11-10 04:01:47 Yes, I remember the B-58 well. I have about 1000 hours in the machine. I was a CCTS (Combat Crew Training Instructor) at Little Rock AFB. The B-58 was easy to fly as long as you didn’t have any problems,which didn’t happen often, then it would kill you in a heartbeat! I survived and look back fondly at my flying memories. 73. Léon "Dodo"Pleging - 2006-11-08 15:08:33 What a beautiful plane!! It still is. I wished I still had the Revell scale model I built when I was about 14 years old. This plane shows sheer force. 72. Mike Jepson - 2006-11-07 13:51:38 I was assigned to the 305th. Bunker Hill 62-66 Ac. 127&068 71. Jerry Ann Martin, Maj. USA Ret - 2006-10-29 03:56:10 WOW! I am really impressed. As an AF brat, I followed my dad whereever the AF sent us. Andy Martin LTC USAF, Ret, 1972 flew the Hustler from 1960 until he flew the last one to Wright Pat. My dad died this year, July 27, 2006. I am using one of your pictures of the Hustler on his memorial tribute. We are burying him at Arlington National Cemetary in the Columbarium November 9 at 3;00 pm. He loved the Hustler and all the crews that flew her. Keep up the great work. I once sat in one of the ejection seats that was in the squadron room at Carswell. Many evenings on weekends and holidays when the crew was on alert we spent time next to the alert shack. REPLY:.. JERRY, I KNEW YOUR FATHER WELL.. HE WAS A DEAR FRIEND, A FINE OFFICER, AND AN EXCELLENT PILOT...WE ARE ALL SADDENED THAT HE HAS TAKEN THE FINAL FLIGHT...WEST..

    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.
