The B-58 Hustler, developed by Convair, was the world's first operational supersonic bomber, and the first capable of reaching Mach 2 speeds. At full speed, it gave a distinctive sonic boom that gained the aircraft public notoriety. A delta-wing aircraft, the B-58 was difficult to fly, and its 3-man crews were considered elite personnel. The B-58 had an unusually high accident rate, and a lower payload and shorter range compared to the B-52, despite being much more expensive to build and maintain. New surface-to-air missiles negated the B-58's speed by forcing any theoretical missions to be flown at low altitude, and the type was retired from service in 1970. Meticulous detailing and a hardwood construction make this model a superb choice for any enthusiast or collector.
