Northrop YB-49 Flying Wing Pilot's Flight Manual By Periscope Film.com
Paperback: $19.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
Visionary designer Jack Northrop built a series of experimental “flying wing” aircraft both before and during WWII. One of the most radical designs of the post-war era, the... More > propeller-driven YB-35 bomber’s all-wing design minimized drag and promised maximum payload capacity and terrific endurance. The YB-49, a turbojet powered variant built on the YB-35 airframe, forever altered aviation history and inspired the design of the B-2 Spirit stealth bomber. Originally printed by Northrop Aircraft in 1948, the YB-49 Flying Wing Pilot's Flight Operating Manual taught pilots everything they needed to know before entering the cockpit. Originally classified “Restricted”, the manual was declassified long ago and is here reprinted in book form. This affordable facsimile has been reformatted, and color images appear as black and white. Care has been taken however to preserve the integrity of the text.< Less

More > concepts of the flight envelope and demanded extraordinary developments in engineering and construction. The test program produced promising results, including a Mach 3 flight in May of 1966. Yet after a disastrous collision later that year resulted in the loss of one of two prototypes, the Valkyrie program was curtailed. The remaining craft was retired in 1969. Originally printed by NASA and the Air Force in the 1960’s, this Flight Operating Handbook taught pilots everything they needed to know before entering the cockpit. Classified “Restricted”, the manual was recently declassified and is here reprinted in book form. This affordable facsimile has been slightly reformatted.

HUN PILOT By Victor Vizcarra
Hardcover: $29.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
Hun Pilot examines the first of the Century Series of new fighters of the mid-'50s from a young fighter pilot's perspective. The North American Aviation F-100 Super Sabre was the first U.S. fighter... More > capable of exceeding the speed of sound in level flight. Designed as a day superiority fighter, it quickly morphed into the Air Force's mainstay fighter-bomber. The F-100 design and its Pratt and Whitney J-57 engine were a quantum leap in aerodynamics and engine technology that expanded the day-to-day operational flight envelope. Pioneering supersonic operations discovered a previously unknown aeronautical phenomenon that challenged new piloting skills. Over its quarter of a century operational career, the F-100 suffered one of the highest accident rates in the fighter inventory, with 38.75% of the fleet destroyed in aircraft accidents. With properly trained pilots, the aircraft fulfilled the USAF requirement for a worldwide deterrent against the nuclear Communist threat.< Less
