Up for auction is without a doubt one of the most difficult to find airplane pilot manuals! It is a original edition of the February 1945' B-29 Superfortress pilot commander manual for this specific aircraft. It is in beautifully used condition with a great patina. Originally printed by the U.S. Army Air Force, this B-29 Airplane Commander Pilot's Training Manual taught pilots everything they needed to know about the Superfortress. I will let the photo's speak for themselves.
The Boeing B-29 was one of the most sophisticated aircraft of WWII. It featured many innovations including guns that could be fired by remote control and pressurized crew compartments. It was also the heaviest production plane of the war, with terrific range and bomb-carrying capabilities. Carrying a crew of ten, the Superfortress devastated Japan in a series of raids in 1944-45. Finally, in August of 1945, the B-29s Enola Gay and Bock's Car dropped the atomic bombs and forced Japan to surrender.
Heavy and large manual! Great historic item for your WW2 collection, I never have a similar one seen for sale, only reprints!
NOTE: stripes on the photo's are not present on the actual book! This is due to the sunblockers!
