Title: BAC TSR2 No’s 1 and 2

The BAC TSR2 was a highly advanced strike aircraft produced by the British Aircraft Corporation in the early 1960’s. The project was controversially cancelled by the British Labour government just after the first few flights of the prototype, due to the government’s policy of moving away from manned aircraft and focusing on missiles. Two non-flying examples survived and are in museums in the UK.

We offer two titles for the TSR2 including the flight manual (Crew’s Notes), the maintenance manual and a nice descriptive brochure. These manuals were classified secret at the time and are preliminary issues, and have been scanned from good quality copies. Each Title is US$9.95 each.
