T-38 Talon Pilot's Flight Operating Instructions By United States Air Force
Paperback: $29.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
(1 Ratings)
Northrop’s T-38 Talon was the world’s first supersonic trainer aircraft, and remains in service today in air forces worldwide. It entered service in 1961, and quickly set climb records,... More > earning it the nickname “white rocket”. Nearly 1200 Talons were produced before the last one rolled off the assembly line in 1972. Capable of a speed of Mach 1.3, and a climb rate approaching 34,000 feet per minute, the T-38’s performance was sufficient to warrant service as the USAF Thunderbirds’ aircraft in the mid-1970s. Its primary role however, was as a dedicated training and proficiency platform. More than 50,000 USAF, NASA and NATO pilots have flown the Talon, a record that may never be matched. Originally printed by the U.S. Air Force and Northrop, this handbook for the T-38 provides a fascinating glimpse inside the cockpit of this famous aircraft. Originally classified “restricted”, the manual was recently declassified and is here reprinted in book form.< Less

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.
