Titles: Boeing B-50 Superfortress No’s 1 and 2

The B-50 was a re-designation of an improved model of the B-29, originally designated B-29D. Using the R-4360 engine with an improved structure and 20% weight increase the B-50 was built or modified in numerous versions but in comparatively small numbers compared to its little brother the B-29. 371 were build between 1947 and 1953 and they remained in service until 1965 when corrosion problems caused their retirement.

We offer two titles on this final incarnation of the piston-engined bomber which include four flight manuals for several variants of the Boeing B-50 series. Each title is US$9.95. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages.
