This B-58A and its crew won the Bendix and Mackay Trophies for 1962. On 5 March 1962 it flew from Los Angles to New York and back setting 3 seperate speed records. In the background I can count about 10 different aircraft. Thanks to WW, TL and JN for the tour.

This bomber was 50 years ahead of it's time.The
systems the bomber had were designed with a slide
rule and pencil and built with good old "American"
heart, spirit, and teamwork.
