|F-104 Starfighter Pilot's Flight Operating Manual |
Created by famed Lockheed designer Kelly Johnson, the F-104 Starfighter was designed to compete with Soviet MiG-15s. Equipped with a huge and powerful J79 engine, the aircraft could reach speeds well in excess of Mach 2.0, while its thin, trapezoidal wing provided extremely low drag with terrific acceleration and rate of climb. This pilot's flight operating handbook was originally produced by the USAF. It has been slightly reformatted but is reproduced here in its entirety. 242 pages, 8½" x 11", b&w photographs.
