Being the first supersonic bomber of the US Air Force, the B58 Hustler is a symbol of bomber aircraft excellence. Featuring a delta-wing design and four General Electric J79 afterburners, high altitudes were never a problem for the jet bomber�and this became an especially useful feature during the early years of the Cold War. With thirty tons of thrust, the B-58 Hustler launched with confidence in 1956 as part of the US Air Force supersonic bomber program. The thunderous roar of its four turbojet engines as it took off the runway signified its superiority and warned enemy aircraft of its might, despite its breathtaking beauty.
This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
