I was at LRAFB from 1966 to 1970 till they made thier last flight. I was assigned to aircraft 441 ground crew. Lot’s of good memories and a great plane.Email [email protected] 238. wr cooper - 2008-12-05 18:57:26 It was my fortune to have worked on the "Hustler" at LRAFB with the 43rd BW(FMS)as a jet engine mech in the mid 60s. Greatest Bomber there was at the time. 237. Ed Morris - 2008-11-30 21:28:29 Nice job Darrell. Ed Morris (RN) Schmoker’s crew S-14 236.

Schmidt - 2008-11-25 00:43:05 This is an attempt to enter my email address as part of the message. For some reason the address is not being included even when entered in the proper box.

In 1963 the big thing was to get an alert of "Blazing Skies". It usually meant the "Hustler" was coming. The sound barrier was not off limits at that time, and the guys flying those 58s sure knew how to break it. Used the north west corner of the Ford plant in Brookpark as their "hit" point, they wold simulate release??? and swoop out over lake Erie and Canada. Thank goodness they were on our side. 232. Shelley Bird Johnson - 2008-11-23 02:48:47 Daughter of Col Mel Dunn - he is still alive and kicking at 82! Navigator B-58 and flew with Dutch. I am currently working toward documenting his whole story not only WWII but B-52 Cuban Missle Crisis as well as B-58 - any help with what to capture ask, describe, etc. would be appreciated! Thanks!! FlyBoyBaby - aka AFBrat 231. James E. "Jimmy" D - 2008-11-18 22:17:17 I WAS IN THE SECURITY POLICE SQUADRON AT GRISSOM AIR FORCE BASE 305 BOMB WING FROM 1969 TO 1970. I GUARDED THE B-58 "HUSTLERS" THERE. MET MY WIFE OF 37 YEARS WHILE THERE. WENT TO MY MOTHER-IN-LAWS FUNERAL THIS PAST WEEKEND IN WABASH, IN. PASSED THE OLD BASE (WHICH ISN’T LIKE IT WAS 37 YEARS AGO). STOPPED IN AT THE GRISSOM AIR MUSEUM - GOT NOSTALGIC - PULLED IT UP ON THE INTERNET AND CAME TO YOUR LINK. SINCERELY, JIMMY DAVIS - 230. Tom Block - 2008-11-11 13:53:26 I flew the Hustler from 1965 to 1968 at Little Rock AFB. I will never forget my first take off and climb in a clean (RC)B-58. What a rush. I went on to fly the U-2 for seven years. After retirement, I went on to fly another twenty years at Continental/ Continental Express. Now rtired in Maine. 229. Jack G. Barbour, Jr. - 2008-11-09 09:30:33 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.

    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.
