When the B-58 Hustler bomber entered service in 1958 it was a very futuristic looking delta wing bomber creating a lot of sensation. Intended as a successor of the B-47 Stratojet it was capable of reaching twice the speed of sound.

However, development went not without problems and costs risings went so out of control that the whole project was almost canceled a few times. Strategic Air Command was initially against ordering the B-58 for service, not only because of its complexity but also since they saw no advantage of a Mach 2 bomber over other types. In spite of this, the B-58 entered into service at S.A.C. in 1960. It would have a relatively short operational career.
