TB-58 Hustler
US Air Force Flight Test Museum
Rosamond, CA


B-58

TB-58 Hustler located on the Edwards Air Force Base photo range. The Hustler carcass is used as a photography target for testing aerial recon systems. This B-58 started life as a YB-58 pre-production development aircraft, and was later modified to be a TB-58 trainer.

The Hustler is owned by the US Air Force Flight Test Museum in Rosamond, California. The museum is located on the grounds of Edwards AFB, and may not be open for the general public following 9/11.

Normally, I only use my own photography on my website. Since this aircraft is in a restricted area, and I have no chance of getting a picture of it in the near future, I decided to make an exception. This photo was provided to me by Doug Nelson, Director of the AFFTC Museum.
