At about 7:45 – Hey! That’s John Denver’s dad – coool . . . The air frame at the SAC museum south of Omaha – “Greased Lightening” – is the B58 that flew Tokyo to London in 8 hours and 35 minutes – in 1963!! – High Performance ?? Lightly loaded climb rate just shy of 46,000 feet per minute – DAMN! That’s a climb rate of about 520 MPH!!

And for you “hardcore” wingnuts . . .

Who remembers sonic booms?? It seemed like hardly a day would go by without hearing one – Good Times . . .

Have Fun! – Run the Gun! – and remember – Fish Heads are Cheap!!
