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.

One still exists static at Grissom AFB Airpark near Kokomo, IN

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.
I wish there was still one airworthy. One of the best ever. Scare the hell out of ISIS lol

My father had the privilege of flying aboard the B-58 as a NAV/Bombardier. It had some of the most advanced avionics for aircraft of its day. It was built for pure speed and endurance, being able to outrun our best interceptors during training exercises. Even its electronics countermeasures gave it a defensive edge.

Beautiful. Looks like the father of the B-1 from other angles.
