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 gigantic raids in 1944-45. In the
end it would be the B-29s "Enola Gay" and
"Bock's Car" that dropped the atomic bombs and
effectively ended the conflict. Originally printed by the United
States Army Air Force in January of 1944, the B-29 Bomber
Pilot's Flight Operating Manual taught pilots everything they
needed to know about the "Superfort" Originally
classified "Restricted", the manual was declassified long
ago and is here reprinted in book form. This affordable facsimile
has been reformatted, and color images appear as black and white.
