9781935327264: B-29 Airplane Commander Training Manual in Color

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. 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. Classified Restricted , the text was declassified long ago and is here reprinted in book form. This impressive facsimile presents the manual in its entirety. It is over 200 pages long, and reproduced in its original multi-color glory for the first time ever.
