2/20/62 Last Bendix Race Flown
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 sixties. In fact, one of the aircraft designed in the early sixties, the SR-71, is still in service, and still holds the world aircraft speed record.
