The complete story is told here, along with a selection of rare photos. 8 1/2" x 11" 140+ color and b/w photos.
New. Aviation-General Unbelievably the supersonic B-58 bomber was designed in the late 1940s but the first flight of the prototype did not take place until late 1956. It would not look out of place in the 21st century and the delta-wing, Mach 2 Hustler had the performance of a fighter but its career was short due to technical problems and excessive costs. It was withdrawn in 1970 having only become operational in mid 1960. The basic design was intended to be truly multi-role with ECM, missile launching and even fighter-bomber versions planned. UL-XXXXXX. A4 format, 80pp, 140+ b/w & colour illustrations.
