The proposed bomber's design and development was to begin less than two years after sustained supersonic flight had successfully been achieved. Convair, building on its experience in earlier delta-wing fighters, beginning with the XFA , a series of GEBO II designs were developed, initially studying swept and semi-delta configurations, but settling on the delta wing planform. The delta planform had good internal volume for support systems and fuel. In February , the Air Force issued a contract for development of Convair's design. Although its large wing made for relatively low wing loading , it proved to be surprisingly well suited for low-altitude, high-speed flight.

Media mogul Flynt, along with co-author David Eisenbach, relates tales of greats like Benjamin Franklin, who helped win the American Revolution by bedding a number of French women. For a country that is currently so mired in fights over morality, our founders and heroes were sometimes anything but moral.
