    I was stationed at Bunker Hill AFB (renamed Grissom AFB in 1967), one of only two AFBs that had the B-58, from 1965 to 1969. The B-58 was one of the greatest airplanes in the USAF inventory.

    I was stationed at Bunker Hill AFB from (ne,Grissom AFB), June 6th 1959 to Mar 1964. Good times were had by all!!!:)
    The takeoff was very realistic……. especially the little “bobble” as the “Three Bent Bicycle” tried to get it altogether and get on the way! Beautifully done!!!!!

    DSO at Grissom AFB . First flight April 1965, Flew Mach 1.92 in a TB-58 down Lake Michigan. Soloed In a B-58 North of Danville , Il at a speed of 1.04 Mach just before it crashed-so much for a DSO landing! It was my only attempt.

    I was with the 45th MMS who had the only split capability of the TCPod and the MB-1 pod from May 61 through Nov 64. Loved the bird and our job. Many kudos to those who flew the bird and all the support crews. Tom

    I was at Bunker Hill from Mar 59 til Oct 64 as B-47 assistant crew chief & B-58 Crew Chief on 059 & 075. Great memories of an aircraft that few had the opportunity to work on.
