This is one of a very few flying B-57s of any type.

Beautiful wing!

This must be one of the 3 RB-57F's still flying.
Nice shot!

Beautiful photo! Thanks. That modified wing must give it quite a bit of lift at high altitudes.

Wonderful Photo Brendan.......

Might be best of the week and beautiful vintage link to a jet bomber of the early jet age.

Incredibly versatile aircraft
Oh! WB57! It's the first time I've seen him flying.
Very nice.
The Canberra lives on
I am happy i could recognize it in a matter of seconds... great plane

Wow! Great shot
N927NA is the one that spent 41 years in storage at MASDC/AMARC/AMARG (The name changed a few times) and flew away in 2013 to be rebuilt for NASA

I was in Kandahar, Afghanistan 2014 through 2016. We had one on the ramp next to us. Not sure what it's mission was but it was cool to see it fly!
Very nice
Once heard someone report that they were at 78,000 on my scanner; didn't think to much about it until I was driving to work. Then I realized, "Wait a minute! Nobody flies that high; nobody needs to." Started researching what could even achieve that and found NAS927 and NAS928; been a fan ever since.

Never have seen one of these before. Very cool. Looks intense.
There was a group of B-57s based at Battle Creek in the 1950s or 60s. They had a different high pitch sound as they flew past.
Beautiful aircraft, beautiful light! What a terrific photo!
In the spring of 1964, the Air Force transferred me from Berlin to the 6937 Communications Group outside of Peshawar, Pakistan. We flew up from Karachi on a C-130, and after deplaning we boarded a bus to the Comm Group. As we rode through the USAF portion of Peshawar Air Base, one of these was parked outside a hangar. One of the guys on the bus asked “What he hell is that???”

Just the week before, I had spent a few hours in the St, Petersburg FL public library, killing some time while on leave between assignments. (I had planned to travel around Europe before heading to Pakistan, but the Air Force had decided I needed additional training back in the US.) While in the library, I perused the latest edition of Jane’s All The World Aircraft, and saw an article on it.

“Oh,” I said, “that’s an RB-57H! It’s used for weather recon.”

An NCO on the bus looked at me rather strangely. I later found out why.

Note the reference to a Peshawar in the article.

Keep in mind: Peshawar was the starting point for Gray Francis Powers’ ill-fated U2 mission over the USSR.

Great pic, with the angle of the Sun as it is, the wings at a distance look as though they do not have Ailerons.
We used to see these flying out of EFD for NASA. The engines were really high pitched whine. You could tell it was coming long before you could see it! Elent Hi altitude...
They replaced the U2 overfly missions during the Cuba Crisis, after the Russians demanded we stop the "U2" missions. Our primary mission was to sample the A bomb clouds at high altitude, both domestic and foreign.
In the early '60's they operated out of R.M. A.B .
@JohnSukovich That is very interesting story , thanks for posting .
