Lindy Field, that picture you posted of the 990 on the ground is interesting. It reveals a family resemblance to the B-58 that I hadn't noticed before. Particularly the nose-down attitude, but also the shape of the tail, the engine nacelles and pylons and their placement, and the cockpit windows. The nose is rather pointy, too.
