Convair B-58 Hustler

The delta-wing Hustler was the first USAF supersonic operational bomber. The B-58 made its initial flight on Nov. 11, 1956 and flew supersonically on Dec. 30, 1956. Distinctive B-58 features included its sophisticated inertial guidance navigation and bombing system, slender "wasp-waist" fuselage, and extensive use of heat-resistant honeycomb sandwich skin panels in the wings and fuselage. The thin fuselage prevented internal carriage of bombs so an external droppable two-component pod beneath the fuselage contained extra fuel and a nuclear weapon, reconnaissance equipment, or other specialized gear. The B-58 crew consisted of a pilot, navigator-bombardier, and defense systems operator.
The USAF ordered 86 Hustlers which were operational in the Strategic Air Command between 1960 and 1970. B-58s set 19 world speed and altitude records and won five different aviation trophies. There were a total of 116 B-58s built: 30 test and pre-production aircraft and 86 for inventory.

B-36?

The B-58 Hustler could do a lot of damage just by breaking the sound barrier at treetop level, it didn't need a lot of bombs. :)

Right you are!

Convair B-36 Peacemaker

The B-36 was the largest American bomber every produced. Its 230 foot wingspan was almost fifty percent longer than that of the huge B-52 that replaced it. During its eight years of service, it one of one of America's major deterrents to aggression by a potential enemy. It was "keeping the peace." Its is famous for "never having fired a shot in anger."
Development of the huge plane began in 1941 when it appear that Great Britain would soon fall to Nazi Germany. The Army Air Force wanted a bomber that could fly from the United States to Europe, drop bombs, then return (combat radius) The prototype first flew on August 8, 1946. The first operational models were delivered to the Strategic Air Command 1948. There were many problems with them and the fleet was not fully operational until 1951.
The Peacemaker achieved its design objective. Its combat radius with a 10,000-pound payload (one small nuclear bomb) was 3,740 nautical miles. With its maximum of bomb load of 86,000 pounds, (conventional bombs), its combat radius decreased to 1,757 nautical miles.
Each B-36 cost $3.6 million. A total of 388 aircraft were produced. The last one was built in August of 1954. On 29 June 1955 the first B-52 was delivered to SAC. All of the B-36s were delivered as or converted to "J" models, which had two jet engines added to each wing. (This was essentially the inboard engine nacelle from the B-47). The all-jet bomber soon took over the Peacemaker's duties. The last B-36 was retired in 1959.

'Vtol' that's all I remember.. that thing would be hell to fly, can you imaging 'parallel parking ' an airplane?? looking over your shoulder?? impossible... must have had a system of mirrors and sensors.. Fly the flight director to the ground... backwards... looking straight up, at the clouds... gives me shivers to think about it.

I think that was the main problem with it & a jet version designed to hook onto a platform while being flown backward.....pilots not being able to see behind them to land the ridiculous things.
(if I remember correctly VTOL is the generic term standing for Vertical Takeoff Or Landing

STOL stands for Short Takeoff Or Landing like the Harrier, I believe.

(don't you just hate a "Know It All"???....product of a mispent youth!)
