The F-82 “Twin Mustang” was conceived during WWII as a long-range fighter escort. Like the P-51, it was designed by North American's brilliant engineer, Edgar Schmued. The F-82 utilized... More > two extended P-51 fuselages, mounted to a newly- designed center wing and tail. The plane incorporated new propeller assemblies and a unique, four-wheel landing gear. In short, while the plane would be cosmetically similar to the Mustang, in reality it was an entirely new beast. The F-82 wasn’t ready before WWII ended, but the program escaped cancellation, and planes entered operational service in 1948. The F-82 became the last piston-
powered fighter ordered by the USAF. It flew as an escort for SAC B-29s, and with distinction as a night fighter in Korea. It was retired in 1953. Originally printed by the USAF and North American, this pilot’s handbook provides a glimpse

More > this TBD-1s performed well at Coral Sea, helping sink the Japanese carrier Shoho. Just three months later at Midway however, Devastator pilots were forced to make their attack runs without fighter escort. Only four planes out of 41 survived. Yet it was not a sacrifice made in vain. The TBD-1s left Japanese fighter patrols in disarray, paving the way for a nearly unopposed attack by Dauntless dive bombers that resulted in the loss of three Japanese aircraft carriers. Originally printed by Douglas and the U.S. Navy, this manual taught pilots everything they needed to know before entering the cockpit.

Capable of speeds in excess of 1200 miles per hour, the F-101 Voodoo was originally designed as a long-range bomber escort. Shortly after the plane’s debut in 1957, however, Strategic Air... More > Command determined that jet escorts for the B-52 were unnecessary. The F-101 was then reconfigured as an air-defense interceptor, fighter-bomber, and reconnaissance platform. Known by its pilots as the “one oh one wonder” for its performance capabilities, the Voodoo flew with distinction in Vietnam, and performed recon missions over Cuba. Over 880 F-101s were built, flying for the USAF and RCAF as late as 1984. Originally printed by McDonnell and the USAF, this F-101 Voodoo Flight Operating Manual was classified “Restricted”.
