Northrop YB-49 FLYING WING Pilot Manual Airplane BOOK !
- Source: eBay
Visionary designer Jack Northrop built a series of experimental “flying wing” aircraft both before and during WWII. One of the most radical designs of the post-war era, the propeller-driven YB-35 bomber’s all-wing design minimized drag and promised maximum payload capacity and terrific endurance. The YB-49, a turbojet powered variant built on the YB-35 airframe, forever altered aviation history and inspired the design of the B-2 Spirit stealth bomber.
Originally printed by Northrop Aircraft in 1948, the YB-49 Flying Wing Pilot's Flight Operating Manual taught pilots everything they needed to know before entering the cockpit. Originally classified “Restricted”, the manual was declassified long ago and is reprinted in book form for the first time in nearly 60 years!
This affordable facsimile has been reformatted, and color images appear as black and white. Care has been taken however to preserve the integrity of the text. It even includes racy, and definitely NOT politically correct, reproductions of the manual's original instructional cartoons!
