david welsh usmc a-6 j mech. pl capt. 118. Larry Larue - 2007-03-17 01:24:43 I was not a flyer, I guarded these beauties from 1967-1969 with the 825th Security Police Squadron Little Rock AFB. thanks for a great site. 117. CW - 2007-03-12 20:58:07 In 1968 I was living in the north end of San Bernardino, California and working for the Corona Laboratories of the Naval Weapons Center at Corona, California. Part of my job at the time allowed me access to intelligence briefing material on the Cold War with the Soviet Union, including schedules of US defense testing. Knowing that one such test was coming up, I was outside with binoculars at the scheduled time. From the west, I could see vapor trails of Red Force bombers attacking from over the Pacific. From the north, south and east came myriad vapor trails from Blue Force fighter interceptors. One by one, the bomber paths were intercepted and turned away as "kills" were recorded. Before it was over, I heard a tremendous roar and turned to see a Hustler, no more than 1Kft AGL screaming in from the south to pass overhead not more than one mile from where I was standing. The B-58 headed for Cajon Pass and the desert beyond. I never did learn what its target was, probably classified above my paygrade, but unofficial reports said its simulated nuke drop was succesfull, along with its subsequent escape. 116. Ron May - 2007-03-06 00:58:18 DSO from May 64-Oct 68. First crewed with Al Castleberry & John Rose. Left for Wild Weasels, I disliked SAC that much. Finished out career in tactical aviation, 10 yrs in F-4. Now retired as American Airlines Capt living on central coast of Ca. 115. Mac Staples - 2007-03-05 14:51:44 B=58 Nav, ’63-’67, 364th Bomb Sq, Bunker Hill. Left for pilot training April ’67. 114. Bob Ritchie - 2007-02-28 20:18:26 Great days back in 62 to 66 when I was on the crew of 59-2457 at Carswell and Little Rock. Great guys like Spring, Dixon, Grazioso, Yoist, Erickson, Trudell were all on the crew with me. 457s name was "Unpredictable" and she sure was. 113. Brad Deam - 2007-02-27 03:06:04 My dearly departed Dad, Phil Deam, was a design engineer who was involved in the design of the B-58 at Convair. We lived in Fort Worth, close to Carswell and in the TO/L corridor. When one of the Hustlers took off, Dad would race to the front door. SO LOUD, SO PROUD!!! Great website. 112. Cliff (crash ) - 2007-02-24 21:00:12 Medic Air Rescue at Carswell AFB,TX 58=61 and Bunker Hill AFB,IN 62=65 Rescued crew in Broken Arrow 64 at BHAFB Great Air Craft. 111. Bob Bertolina - 2007-02-22 16:17:01 Great web site. I work at Stanley Aviation, that built the ejector seats for the B-58. We have one on display in our plant. Its very small, but neat to look at. Eaton Corp bought our company, and they going to close the plant and move operation to Mexico. Sure is good that someone keeps the history alive. The employees want to put the seats in an Aerospace museum,But we do not trust them to do the right thing! Again great Site.

    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.
