Northrop X-4 Bantam Pilot's Flight Operating Instructions By Periscope Film LLC
Paperback: $19.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
(1 Ratings)
Designed without horizontal stabilizers, the X-4 Bantam had a semi-tailless design that bore some resemblance to Germany’s Me-163 rocket plane. The small, twin-jet craft relied on combined... More > elevator and aileron surfaces — known as elevons — for pitch and roll control. The role of the X-4 was to explore the transonic speed zone, and to determine whether the design would lessen the stability and control problems affiliated with compressibility. Although two Bantams were built, only one proved mechanically sound. The second was flown over eighty times by Northrop, Air Force and NACA pilots. They learned that the X-4 was sensitive in pitch, and showed a tendency to “hunt” about all three axes as it approached Mach 1.0. Thus, the X-4’s design proved a failure. Originally printed by Northrop, NACA and the USAF, this handbook provides a fascinating glimpse inside the cockpit of this experimental plane. The manual was recently declassified and is here reprinted in book form.< Less

In the late 1940’s and early 50’s, planes flew higher and faster than anyone had dreamed possible. The jet age had arrived, and along with it came turbojet and rocket-powered aircraft... More > capable of flying beyond the speed of sound. To assess these aircraft, the Air Research and Development Command developed a series of data reduction methods, and then compiled them in this Flight Test Engineering Manual. It served as a standard technical reference for the flight test engineers, program managers, pilots and support teams for many of the X-plane programs of the 1950s. This reprint represents the first time in over fifty years that this book has been available, and the first time it has ever been made available to the public. it’s a unique time capsule that provides insight into the era of “The Right Stuff”, when slide rules and punch cards were the cutting edge, and a must-have for anyone interested in the technical aspects of flight test.< Less
Douglas X-3 Stiletto Pilot's Flight Operating Instructions By United States Air Force
Paperback: $19.96

The radical Douglas X-3 Stiletto was built primarily of titanium, and was intended to test high speed flight and low-aspect ratio wing design. Initial requirements indicated the aircraft would carry... More > the J-46 engine and be capable of reaching cruising speeds above Mach 2.0. Problems with the J-46 engine, led Douglas engineers to substitute underpowered J-34 turbojets. Although the plane once achieved Mach 1.2 in a dive, it never went supersonic in level flight. Nevertheless, the plane was a valuable research tool and produced critical data about inertial coupling. The X-3 first flew in 1952 and was retired in 1956. Originally printed by the U.S. Air Force and NACA (later NASA), this hand- book provides a fascinating glimpse inside the cockpit of one of history’s great planes. Classified “Restricted”, the manual was declassified and is here reprinted in book form. Although slightly reformatted, care has been taken to preserve the integrity of the text.< Less
