my ride butnever succeeded. Damn. Are there any flying yet? Great to find a site. [email protected] 297. Harold Bolin CMSGT Ret - 2010-02-10 14:45:53 Enjoyed the website-I was a tow truck driver at Bunkehill 66-68 and remember vividly backing the B58’s into the alert hangers after one of the many alerts. 296. Dennis Shelly - 2010-02-08 16:37:47 [email protected] big fan of this plane thanks for keeping it alive 295. Roger Cagle - 2010-01-29 16:40:59 I just happened across this web site, must be a newer one. I was stationed at castle A.F.B in 1958, when I got orders to the B-58n test force at Carswell.

I was a avionics technician, and worked on all of the comm-nav systems. I had the opertunity to see a large number of the airpolanes in various phases of assembly. I got to attend most of the traing classes that Convair held over at the aircraft factory. I was selected to be the comm-nav technician for operation Quickstep. When the 43RD bW Was split to form two wings, I was assogned to 305th bw and transfewrred to Bunker Hill, left the A.F. in 1964. I now live Near Kingman Ariz., I work in a movie theater in Laughlin Nev. just became aware of this reunion in may, and will try to attend if I can. 294. ty nugent - 2010-01-18 08:15:18 growing up in San Diego in the 50s the B-58 along with the B-36 were my dream Machines,there still is not a Aircraft that can Match the B-58 HUSTLER in Looks,it will always seem like is is going 1000 mph just... sitting on the ground. 293. Jack Barbour - 2010-01-16 09:16:20 Worked my way up from 3rd wiper to Crew Chief on B-58 61-2075 @ Bunker Hill AFB from 1966 to Dec 1969. Great aircraft and group to work with on the Bunker 6 Team. The memories are still there from the early morning preflights to the ALERT AREA. Great site. Would like to hear from others from that era. [email protected] 292. Terence wood - 2010-01-15 10:27:55 the hustler has a look that never dates. i saw one at an air show in england and it represented the united states commitment to our fredom. the crew told of the constant readiness winter and summer. america is in the debt of them and all the ground staff. an air force chief of staff commenting on the limited range said it would be ok if our enemy was canada. but for many europeans the hustler like the mustang sports care is america. 291. Valice Dean Reames - 2010-01-04 17:51:48 I was an Airways and Air Communications Operations Specialist in the 63 Bomber Sqdn. when it became operational as the world’s first operational supersonic bomber squadron. I was then transfered to the 64th Bomber Sqdn. befor it was activated as the world’s second operational supersonic bomber squadron, therefor making me a plankholder in both of the world’s first two supersonic bomber squadrons. There is a trophy standing in the Airforce Museum in Colorado (the Bleriot Trophy) which was set up in 1929 for "the first person to cross the Atlantic in under 8 hours". Col. Payne,Maj. Polhemus, and Capt. Wagner flew a Hustler from New York to Paris in conciderably under 8 hours, and won the trophy.

    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.
