Republic F-84 Thunderjet Pilot's Flight Operating Manual

by United States Air Force

Republic F-84 Thunderjet Pilot's Flight Operating Manual Synopsis

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. Classified Restricted , the manual was recently declassified and is here reprinted in book form. This facsimile has been reformatted and color images appear in black and white. Care has been taken to preserve the integrity of the text.
