TB-58 Hustler
Little Rock Air Force Base
Jacksonville, AR


B-58

This TB-58 is currently located in the air park at Little Rock Air Force Base in Jacksonville, Arkansas. Despite the base name being Little Rock, the city of Jacksonville is actually about 10 miles northeast of the city of Little Rock. The aircraft is not visible from a public location. One option to see this aircraft is during a base open house when traffic is routed past the airpark when exiting from the event.

The photo above is the B-58 Hustler when it was on display at the Lone Star Flight Museum in Galveston, Texas. This B-58 is actually a TB-58, one of 8 pre-production YB-58 Hustlers rebuilt as dual control trainers. The museum in Galveston was heavily damaged by Hurricane Ike on September 13, 2008. The museum filled with water from the strom surge, and most of the aircraft and exhibits ended up floating in the water, crashing into each other. The B-58 was beat up and one wing was badly damaged. Little Rock AFB had been trying for years to get a B-58 for display, so they jumped at the chance to obtain the Hustler, repair the damage, and put her on display.
