At the end of the 1950's, the future of aviation was to be the supersonic transport. In order to get there, Convair suggested that their Mach 2 B-58 "Hustler" bomber be converted into testbeds for SST technologies and operations. Several aircraft were designed, from pure test aircraft to planes designed for combined passenger transport and recon... all the way to a Mach 3 transport capable of carrying 135 passengers 4000 miles.

This book describes these designs, and is richly illustrated with contemporary and modern diagrams and full-color photos and artwork.
