The Convair B-58 Hustler, designed by American aircraft manufacturer Convair and manufactured by Consolidated at Fort Worth, TX, was the first operational bomber capable of Mach 2 flight. Developed in the 1950s, it was used as a nuclear weapon carrier by the Strategic Air Command during the Cold War until 1970. A total of 116 aircraft were built, 30 of them test and 86 series machines. The introduction of new anti-aircraft systems in the USSR (especially SA-2 Guideline) quickly ruins the strategic advantage of the B-58. The high operating and maintenance costs ultimately led to the end of the program and from 1965 to the gradual decommissioning of the Convair B-58. As far as I know there are 8 surviving aircraft. A little more information can be found in the placemarks.

syzygy: Yup! Sorry everyone for the attachment issue! Hope will be solved soon! Until links to kmz files stored elsewhere is can be a solution...

RaveyThirteen: So... I just tried to add a .kmz of some new finds and saw that nasty error message. Should I just hold onto it til the space issue is sorted?

typsish: As far as I know, it should be foldable. But check the rules of the company you are flying with. They have the specific requirements mentioned in the luggage section. And if the stroller you have now doesn't fit their requirements, check the article on new

diane9247: I don't know what to do about the "space limit" thing. I got a post ready, then couldn't upload the small file. I am losing eyesight, so not sure I can even post anymore! 😵💫(Pinned unfinished post last night, but it didn't save.)
