In gratitude for the countless hours spent turning a B shell into the gallant bomber displayed here, the Kelly Field Heritage Foundation salutes the men and women of the th Combat Logistics Support Squadron for their skill, dedication and hard work. Developed in the late s and serviced by Kelly AFB workers in the s, the Convair B Hustler was developed for the United States for service in the Strategic Air Command and designed to satisfy the Air Force requirement for a heavy bomber with a combat radius of 2, miles.
Convair B-58 Hustler
NACA lab performed critical tests | NASA
The Convair B Hustler , designed and produced by American aircraft manufacturer Convair , was the first operational bomber capable of Mach 2 flight. To achieve the high speeds desired, Convair adapted the delta wing used by contemporary fighters such as the Convair F The bomber was powered by four General Electric J79 engines in underwing pods. Later, four external hardpoints were added, enabling it to carry up to five weapons.
One of them, the Convair B Hustler, looks radical even today. With its long, slender fuselage, dramatically swept delta wing, and four big engines, the B looked fast even when it was on the ground. It was one of the first aircraft to take advantage of the knowledge that the way to overcome drag in supersonic flight is to sweep the wings at such an angle that the aircraft flies within the Mach cone, a three-dimensional bow wave formed around a body moving through the air at supersonic speed. When the wings are within that cone, the airflow over them remains subsonic. So successful were the Convair aerodynamicists at managing supersonic flight that on October 15, , the first production Hustler flew faster than Mach 2 for more than an hour.
