The most successful naval fighter aircraft in history, the Grumman F6F Hellcat accounted for nearly 5200 kills during WWII. The Hellcat featured self-sealing fuel tanks, a bullet- resistant... More > windscreen, and hydraulically-operated landing gear. The plane was rugged, and carried over 200 pounds of armor. Despite this, it was highly maneuverable and fast, thanks to a 2000 hp engine. Nearly 12,300 F6Fs were made during the war. They first saw action during the Tarawa invasion, and subsequently flew in every battle of the Pacific campaign. Hellcats accounted for nearly 75% of all aircraft kills in the Pacific. Originally created by the U.S. Navy, this flight operating manual taught pilot's everything they needed to know before entering the cockpit. It's a wonderful guide to one of history's great planes.

Paperback: $10.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
Change to: The prior editions of the SchuyLab user manual were organized by common use scenarios, for example Daily Processing and Management. SchuyLab is now in so many types of labs, in so many... More > places, that how workflow is managed in a lab can vary tremendously; it's evident that these use cases are not as helpful as we had intended. Therefore, we have now reorganized our Manual to match the on-screen layout of SchuyLab instead of a hypothetical workflow. This is Volume One of the new 3.2 manual in our new 'encyclopedic' format. This volume documents the base system of SchuyLab , which is to say, F2 - F6, and F8. (The optional modules in the F7 section are described in the second volume.)< Less
