Douglas F4D Skyray Pilot's Flight Operating Instructions By Periscope Film LLC

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 Although 420 “Fords” were built by 1958, they were withdrawn in 1964.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

More > “Cedar Valley Road”, with right- of-way extending from Cedar Falls north to Waverly. A busy freight and passenger service, the Cedar Valley was unusual in its day for its reliance upon electricity for motive power. Five 60-ton Westinghouse locomotives hauled wheat, cotton, corn and mining and industrial products at high speed, while box motors and interurban trolley cars speeded passengers to and fro. The success of the operation inspired Westinghouse to create The Story of the Cedar Valley Road — and demonstrate how electric power could trump steam powered freight and passenger service.
