Last Bendix Race Won by B-58
(3/5/62)The end of an era was reached when the B-58 won the last Bendix race. The race, that had been held for nearly 30 years, symbolized man's continued striving for a faster aircraft. That striving ended in the 1960s. In fact, one of the aircraft designed in the early 1960s, the SR-71, is still in service, and still holds the world aircraft speed record.
