Convair B-58A Hustler: “Valkyrized”.

Overly dramatic, not the matter, redemption of Strategic Air Command (SAC) in action over the mightiest target, Moscow. The artist seems to have found the stunning Hustlers a bit too “lame looking”; he’s added them some very B-70 Valkyrie-like canards.

Artwork: “Failsafe” Saturday Evening Post Cover (October 13, 1962) by Robert McCall.

Just finished this refreshing view of the SAC, nukes and the very Cold War in general. An Eye opener, quite well-written and very readable. Highly recommended.
