The primary strike aircraft of the Korean War, Republic Aircraft's F-84 Thunderjet flew 86,000 missions during that conflict. It is credited with inflicting a stunning 60% of the total target damage during the war, and its pilots downed eight MiGs.
The first jet fighter to utilize in-flight refueling, and the first to fly with the USAF Thunderbirds, the F-84G model Thunderjet could also carry a nuclear payload in the form of a Mark 7 bomb. Over 7,500 were produced, including a swept-wing Thunderstreak variant. They flew for Strategic Air Command as late as 1957.
Originally printed by Republic and the U.S. Air Force, this F-84 Flight Operating Manual taught pilots everything they needed to know before entering the cockpit. The manual was recently declassified and is here reprinted in book form.
