|I enjoyed the site. As a kid, I had a chance to watch a
single B-58 do T&G's in Ft Worth. Even
built the plastic model w/the pop-out ejection.
My only close-up view was at Pima Air Museum in Tucson. The main gear machine work was so
delicate. The B-58 has to be one of the most beautiful airplanes ever built. I can sure
understand your reason for maintaining the web site.
From the beauty to the beast -- do you know of any good B-36 sites? I grew up under these
monsters in El Paso (Biggs AFB)
Thanks for the site -- Jeff Ward

|I just got back from a 1 week visit to see the B-58, among
many other planes. I never get board of looking
at that plane. It is just amazing. Nice to get home and find a B-58 home page.

|As someone else already said "another great B-58 page"
- as far as I'm concerned you can't get too
much B-58 info! I've got every book, plastic model kit and article printed (I think!) about the
Hustler - also been able to photograph the aircraft that are "still alive" today - keep up the GREAT work!

|Good site. Love the B-58. Best B-58 experience for me was
in 1964. I was
a manual weapons controller at Havre AFS in Montana. and it was one of those ADC vs.
SAC things. I was controlling a pair of ANG F-89Js, with the nuc Genie. Hustlers came screaming in, I was paired for a head-on. Scorpion pilot goes under, pulls the stick, goes over on his back and pickles the Genies. The PK chart said, splash one B-58. The Sac guy was way ticked. I was thrilled.

|Great home page! My father was part of the team that developed the Doppler radar system for the B-58 and we were stationed at Carswell 59-63. Great memories of all those Convair deltas streaking around the place. B-58 trivia 4 U: name the famous pop singer whose father set a speed record in the Hustler.|

|I'm always looking for pages dedicated to the "Hustler."
I remember watching them when I was growing up...amazing! And a good friend
of my family was a '58 driver...his crew made the first successful 3-man
ejection. And as memory serves...he has the seat/pod in his garage to this
day! Along with other assorted bits of memory. Unfortunately he lost many
of his photos, etc., in a home accident.
Still an impressive plane after all these years!
P.S. The '58 pilots name: Claude L. Montgomery...we just called him "Monty." LSU grad from 1949...retired in 1979 after 30 years; Colonel. I was a cadet at the Academy then; had the honor of being his retirement color guard commander.

I am an ex Royal New Zealand Airforce A&P mechanic. I worked mostly on the A4. I appreciate aircraft that are the simplest and lightest that can get the job done. Keep the B58 alive in our minds.|

|I spent my youth maintaining the engines on the B58 in
the 3958th OE&T-43rd. BW and 305th.
I always enjoy seeing anything about the B58. As with most of my peers, I had a love/hate relationship
with them. The engines were very dangerous in the beginning and difficult to maintain...Just as we finally had a good safe engine we phased them out...Just a little trivia- Part of the success and reliability of the F4 in later years was because of the improvements in the engines applied to the J79 in the F4--lesson learned from B58...I spent 10 years working on these great planes...at least 6 days per week...and I still loved the.

|The B-58 Hustler has always fascinated me. I build models
for a hobby, and a small Monogram kit
of the B-58 is what started it all for me (I still have it 17 1/2 years later). It's a great airplane

|Thanks for the picture of the rear cockpit hatches. Proceding with modle of B-58. I firlst saw the B-58 doing a takeoff form Ramey AFB, Puerto Rico in the late 50's. I can still see the yellow/blue flames from the burners as it rose above the hangers and just roared out of site!! Most impressive!! Always from that time wanted to fly the Hustler. Was too late though, an got B-52!|

|I was surprised to find the B-58 on the web. I had thought
it was a forgotten peice of aircraft history.
I worked on this sweet bird from approx. Aug of 66 untill the end at Little Rock AFB. It is my favorite of 20 years in the Air Force, with the FB-111 being my second favorite and the last one I worked with. Glad to see the jet remembered.

|I have to say wow.But heres some history.
A ssgt I work with was assigned to the AF heritage society.He told me this story about a 58'
that they pulled out of a feild just off the end of the runway at ol' little rock.Seems way back when after it bellyed in they just left it.Well after several years this farmer finaly gets tired of looking at it and tells the AF to come get it.When they get there theres a couple of hundred bullet holes from all the hunters that can't seem to kill anything else.They open the cockpit and some wise guy has wired a goat to the controls.He said it must have been there a while because all there was was a skeleton.Well anyway this beauiful bird ( minus goat) now sits down for all to see at Lackland AFB REstored an standing proud

|I was stationed at GAFB In. from 1985 to 1991. My squadron the 305 OMS was responsible for the preservation work on the B-58 Hustler at the base main gate. A Cmsgt.there told us that he was there when this airplane had an oxygen fire in one of the docks in 1967. Still an impressive aircraft even after 30 years. Keep up the good work|

|I've been in the Air Force for going on 23 years and worked on aircraft (C-141a/b) for the first 18 years. In 1993 I was forced to retrain in Space Command (manning realignment), but my heart will always belong to aircraft. I'll be retiring in the next year with 24 years and god willing, I'll get to go back to work on aircraft. I've got experience in Aircraft Maintenance (APG) and Avionics (Autopilot, Instruments, and Inertial NAV). I first saw a B-58 Hustler at Chanute AFB, Illinois on static display and have always thought it was one of the greatest planes built. Thanks for a great web site.|

|Great site, thanks for providing the info. In the early

(it was a beautiful aircraft!). I know that Chanute AFB has closed...Is
she still there?
Note: from Darrell. As of my most current information, it is still there.

|One of my hobbies is to build plastic models of airplanes,
but only those ones who really made
history, like C47, P47, P51, Me109, Spitfire, among others. Talking about jets, the Hustler B58
is my favorite from the 50/60's. The only one I saw face to face is that one at the air Force
Museum, at Wright-Patterson AFB. Living in Brazil, you might understand how difficult is to me to
have a chance to see one of that beauties. Keep the great job in the net and regards.

|OK, Pardner, I must admit I am impressed by your Website,
but not as much as I was on those night intercepts we ran against the Hustler
in our F-102sm when we fell in five mile trail and watched the overtake
go to negative 500knots! Good work, classmate. I knew you would go far,
but didn't think you would do it so fast!
NOTE FROM DARRELL: A lot of these last entries are my old buddies from Aviation Cadet Class 55-I (YAY!) [55-I means we got our wings in 1955!]

one once while flying an F-89. I was behind
it at low altitude. He was just loitering and I was at full power, cutting him off in the turns
but he was still walking away from me. It was a really nice bird. I wonder how it would have done
over North Vietnam??

|Great Home Page. I remember you, but I don't remember your squadron and crew. Love the B-58. I was a DSO in the 63 Bomb Squadron from 1960 until March 1969. Flew with Bud Via, Gene Schotts, Walt Renelt, and Burwell Block. When I left the 58, I went to the RF-4C with Dick Reynolds and a combat tour in SEA, Udorn and Saigon. F4 was fun but the 58 was more fun. Hope to see you at next reunion.|

|Yes, the Hustler was the coolest production aircraft ever built! Too bad it was such a pain to maintain and that was one main reason for its demise (yes, I'm a maintenance troop!)|

|I was a B47 AC, 343rd BS at Lincoln AFB, Nebraska.
Our Squadron Ops Officer, Maj. Robinson (can't
remember his first name, we called him Robby, went to B58's at Bunker Hill. Do any of you remember
him? I would like to get his email address if he one. Great site, I was always amazed at the 58. A beautiful bird.

|I grew up about a mile off the north end of the runways at GD and Carswell. I saw the first B-58 test flight perched atop a tree in our backyard. I will always remember those midnight alerts at Carswell and B-36's departing about a minute apart. My Lake Worth High School senior annual featured the B-58. Anyone know what happened to the B-58 that was on display at museum (now closed) on Grants Lane entrance to GD?|

|I have flown as Navigator on most of the aircraft in the Air Force. The B-58 was the most outstanding aircraft I have ever come in contact with. It has left me with fond memories.|
