Based on the U.S. Navy’s A3D Skywarrior, the B-66 Destroyer was SAC’s light bomber, and was to replace the piston-powered B-26 Invader. An RB-66 photo-reconnaissance version was ordered simultaneously. It was first envisaged that the conversion from a carrier-based craft to a land-based plane would be straightforward, but the transition was lengthier than anticipated. Most changes stemmed from the USAF’s stipulation that the plane be suitable for low-level operations. The first production RB-66B aircraft finally flew in early 1955. Deliveries began in 1956, and 145 were produced. They were used as the primary night recon aircraft of the USAF during that time. 72 of the B-66B bomber version were built concurrently, and thirteen B-66B aircraft were adapted as EB-66B ECM aircraft for the Vietnam War. The final B-66 variant took shape as the WB-66D weather reconnaissance aircraft, just 36 being built. The B-66 left service with the USAF in 1973.
