Product description

Category Books on aviation, Subcategory US Jet Aircraft, ISBN/Box 9781935327332, Publisher/Brand Periscope, Format a4, No. Pages 175, Version Soft cover, Language English

The Douglas F4D Skyray was a single-engine, delta-wing fighter aircraft. Equipped with the J40 after-burning turbojet, it was at one time the world's hottest plane. On October 15, 1953, pilot Bob Rahn flew at 728 mph on a 100 km course -- a mark that would not be eclipsed for five years.

Troubles with powerplants resulted in delays with the F4D entering service. When it finally came on line in 1956, it was generally met with enthusiasm. Yet the plane's short range, awkward handling characteristics, and inherent instability made it somewhat ill-suited for carrier use. Although 420 "Fords" were built by 1958, they were withdrawn in 1964.

Originally printed by Douglas and the U.S. Navy, this handbook provides a fascinating glimpse inside the cockpit of this plane. The manual was recently declassified and is here reprinted in book form.
