    The Convair B-58 Hustler is one of the most unique aircraft in military service. Not only is it strikingly different in appearance, but it is the fastest bomber in the Strategic Air Command history. It set several international speed records, some still standing today. "Ginger", was one of the operational test vehicles, based at Edwards Air Force Base, California. On October 15, 1959, it became the first plane to sustain Mach 2 flight, flying between Seattle, Washington and Carswell AFB, Texas, in 70 minutes, averaging nearly 1,320 mph. In October 1963, "Greased Lightning", flew from Tokyo to London in 8 hours, 35 minutes, averaging 938 mph. However, on the last leg, one of the afterburners failed, reducing its overall speed. It is one of the few surviving Hustlers, and is now on display at the SAC Museum in Ashland, Nebraska.
