The San Diego Air & Space Museum Archive has uploaded a lot of new stuff on Flickr. Among these thousands of rare images, about 30 photos of a "lost" Convair program, the Lobber surface-to-surface missile (in fact a cargo rocket), which was tested by the U.S. Army in 1958.

Here is a first selection of these images.
