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

Yet, already one rival had appeared with the emergence of submarines whose torpedoes could sink the largest of... More > battleships. Soon, an even deadlier rival appeared. At first, the new flying machines didn't seem to be much of a threat as they were in their infancy. Naval opinion varied from outright dismissal of them to ‘wait and see'. Yet there were pioneers who understood that they would be essential to naval dominance. Within 50 yrs., their efforts had made the aircraft carrier into the new Queen of the seas. The Evolution of Aircraft Carriers is a compilation of official U.S. Navy documents, essays and photographs that takes the reader on a journey from Eugene Ely’s first flight from the USS Birmingham to the building of the first carrier from the keel up and continues on for over 50 years of world naval aircraft carrier and aviation history; ending just after completion of the USS Enterprise CVN-65.< Less

More > althought it eventually saw combat with the French in the Indo-China war, it never flew in harm’s way in the U.S. Navy. One of the best piston-powered fighters ever built, the F8F could achieve a cruising speed of over 420 mph. In 1946 a Bearcat set a time-to-climb record of 10,000 feet in 94 seconds, a feat not matched until the advent of high-performance jet fighters nearly a decade later. Originally printed by Grumman and the U.S. Navy, this Flight Operating Handbook taught pilots everything they needed to know before entering the cockpit.
