"National Museum of the US Air Force" The Hustler was the USAF's first operational supersonic bomber. Its high speed should allow it to fly high and fast and avoid enemy SAMs and fighters. However more advanced ground defenses and fighters, developed by the Russians at the time, negated the B-58's performance advantages. It only had a short military career lasting merely 10 years after which it was replaced by the F-111. [Nikon D800 / AF-S Nikkor 16-35mm]
