Rockwell’s B-1 Lancer serves as the supersonic component of the USAF’s bomber fleet. An outgrowth of the requirement for a heavy bomber to replace the B-52, the Lancer was conceived... More > during the Cold War as a high-speed, radar-penetrating platform. Originally intended to achieve speeds above Mach 2, the operational B-1B normally cruises at Mach .92 and dashes at speeds up to Mach 1.25. The design uses variable-sweep wings to provide high lift during takeoff and landing, and low drag in high-speed flight. Known in the Air Force as the “Bone” (for B-One), the Lancer served from 1986-92 in a strategic bombing role. Reconfigured for conventional support, the B-1 was used in Iraq in 1998, and then in Kosovo, Afghanistan and again Iraq in 2003. It continues to fulfill a vital role. This pilot's flight operating handbook was originally printed during the B-1A test program. Recently declassified, it is presented here in book form.

More > Crusader. It boasted a heads-up display, an inertial navigation system, and other innovations. The plane entered service in 1966, and served in Vietnam in late 1967.

The Douglas F4D Skyray was a single-engine, delta- wing fighter aircraft. Equipped with the J40 after-burning turbojet, it was at one time the world’s hottest plane. On October 15, 1953, pilot... More > Bob Rahn set a speed record of 728 mph on a 100 km course — a mark that would not be eclipsed for five years. Troubles with powerplants resulted in delays with the F4D entering service. When it finally came on line in 1956, it was generally met with enthusiasm. It had wonderful rates of roll and climb, the latter being of some import for its planned mission: high-altitude interception. Yet the plane’s short range, awkward handling characteristics, and inherent instability made it somewhat ill-suited for carrier use. Although 420 “Fords” were built by 1958, they were withdrawn in 1964. Originally printed by Douglas and the U.S. Navy, this handbook provides a fascinating glimpse inside the cockpit of this plane. The manual was recently declassified and is here reprinted in book form.< Less

The D-558 aircraft were part of a transonic research program originated by NACA and the U.S. Navy. The D-558-1 Skystreak turbojet was designed in 1945 and first flew in 1947 at Muroc. It quickly set... More > a new world speed record of over 650 miles per hour. Although it approached Mach 1.0 in level flight, the Skystreak could only break the speed of sound in a dive. The successor aircraft, the D-558-2 Skyrocket, was equipped with a turbojet and the same rocket system as Bell’s X-1. The jet was used for takeoff and landing, and the rockets allowed the aircraft to travel into the transonic zone. The Skyrocket test program began in 1948. In 1953, Scott Cross- field bested that mark and flew into aviation history when he became the first person to reach Mach 2.0 in the plane. Originally printed by the U.S. Navy, NACA and Douglas, this book contains manuals for both of these amazing aircraft. Originally classified “Restricted”, they have been declassified and are here reprinted in book form.< Less
