  •  Hustler: A beautiful plane (7+ / 0-)

    Only 4 years front line service. Extremely cutting edge.

    Post ww2-Thru the decades it seems as if 2 kinds of bombers were built, they kind the USAF needed (B-52), and the plane that had all the newest stuff and the best top speed (B-58 & B-1), the one congress wanted.

    Some folks just got hung up about the hi speed penetration of strategic Soviet airspace. Even though no jet engine in the cold war era could give you mach 2 or 3 all the way to the target, let alone have fuel left to run away.

    .................expect us......................... FDR 9-23-33, "If we cannot do this one way, we will do it another way. But do it we will.
