When I was briefly stationed at Little Rock AFB in the mid 70s, I remember being disappointed that the only obvious evidence of the B-58's operational history there, was a stripped out hulk, out in the weeds, waiting to be burned by the base fire dept. I never saw a Hustler fly, but I can imagine the awesome spectacle of all those afterburners and beautifully shaped aluminum during a MITO exercise (Minimum Interval Take Off, one every 14 seconds).
