He also personally knew P.K.Carlton who was the Commander of MAC at the time. He had one vane of a burner nozzle that he had scraped on landing by having a wing too low. When I was an AC I flew with a CP whose father had been in B-58s and then SR-71s – Jack Kennon. I looked him up on the SR-71 and found a picture and found on your site that he had gone PCS. I haven’t talk with his son Jay Kennon for some time but will forward your website to him. Any chance of tracking down Larry Duval or just telling him hi for me. It has been a long road since flying CP for him. I am currently in Afghanistan flying CASA- 212s on a DOD contract. Great site and a wonderful presentation.

You mentioned that you wanted the site to be about the Hustler and you have done a fantastic job of that. However, this is a wonderful tribute to you and your comrades and I think everyone would enjoy seeing more pictures of the guys to whom we all owe so much. [email protected] Thank you for your service and you website. Paul Hooper, Major USAF (Ret) 255. Dick Dirga - 2009-05-10 15:58:22 For those that missed it, the current issue (May)of the Air Force Magazine features the B-58 on its Airpower Classics page. If you don’t subscribe, check it out on their web site, <a rel=’nofollow’ href=’http://www.airforce-magazine.com’ target=_blank>www.airforce-magazine.com</a>. If you look after May, it’ll be in their archives. The aricle states its crews were "fiercely loyal". I hadn’t thought about that, but I guess we were (and still are). Dick Dirga B-58 DSO, Little Rock 1965-69 THANKS DICK, I PLACED A LINK TO THAT ARTICLE ON MY B-58 WEB SITE SO IF ANYONE HAS TROUBLE WITH DICK’S LINK, MY LINK GOES DIRECTLY TO THAT ARTICLE 254. Tom Denton - 2009-03-26 15:03:17 I just ran across your site looking for info on F-106 and couldn’t resist signing in. I grew up during the 50’s/60’s in Rochester, IN; just 20 miles from Bunker Hill. It was always an exciting moment for a young kid to drive past the base on US 31 and see the Hustlers either sitting in the barns; or if you were lucky, coming in right over the top of you. To me they were the baddest, meanest, most beautiful things I’d ever seen. One night we were coming home from Indy and as we passed the base I remember three Hustlers scrambling out of the barns. It totally blew me away and helped lead me to an USAF enlistment and later a 25 year career in the defense industry. So my first question. Was it standard procedure to hit burner in the barns, because that’s what it looked like they did that night? The barns were always open (no doors). So I’ve always assumed that was the way things were done. Second question. Were there ever F-106s stationed with the B-58s at Bunker Hill? If so, when? This is the aircraft I ended up with as an avionics technician at Langley AFB and never knew they might have been closer to home.

    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.
