cool things with wheels, since 2006
Along with this theme, the P-51 that shot down a DC-3, and carries the stars and stripes along with the swastikas and rising suns on its kill tally.http://southernarizonaguide.com/pima-air-space-museum-bad-angel-mysterious-kill-markings/
wow! THANKS! Posting that story!
I believe that the plane is a B-58 Hustler. Medium Nuclear Bomber, served in 50's-60's. I don't believe it was ever used in anger as it was a "strategic" weapon. This one apparently dropped some bombs or something. I know that the larger silhouettes are of the nuclear bomb/fuel tank that the B-58 used exclusively. The Hustler was amazingly fast. It was the first bomber to achieve sustained MACH 2 flight. It used 4 of the same jet engines from the F-4 Phantom, with afterburners. I read somewhere that they took 2 of the 4 afterburners off. Keep up the good work!
yup, B 58... I made a mistake and called it a 38. Thanks!
