I've always wanted to see one of these things! Flying or on the ground....

There is an example of the B-58 at Pima Air Museum in Tuscon. I was surprised at how small it appeared when actually seeing it sitting right in front of you. Nonetheless a very impressive aircraft w 4 jet engines on a relatively small airframe in my observation.

Here is a shot of the B-58 at Pima Air that I posted a while back. It does look too small to be a bomber, but it is a cool looking plane.

Are the rest stll chopped up and laying at Davis Monthan? They were there in the 70's when I was stationed there.

There aren't any that you can see from the road. (I just drove by there two days ago.) The last ones I saw that were actually chopped up were a number of B-52s. But that was quite a few years ago.
