No carry on bags on this flight. Was there even room for a baggage
hold below the passenger deck or was it all fuel?

Very little in the way of amenities on this bird. Lucky there was a toilet!

It looks like a Myasishchev M-50:

Speaking of which, how would you like to try a RATO launch in this thing?:

Convair suggested the same for the B-58. I do not, however, recall
anything similar for the B-70 or B-1.

I've been looking at that picture- I thing those quad rocket units are
the first stages of a couple of Galosh ABMs.
