Titles: Consolidated B-24 Liberator Nos 1 to 3

Developed by Consolidated as a long-range bomber of similar size to the B-17, the B-24 was one of the most numerous US aircraft of WW2, over 19,000 examples of all variants being produced. The versions operated by the US Navy were known as the PB4Y, and the cargo variants were known as the C-87 and RY. An early variant sold to the British was designated LB-30.

We offer three titles for this aircraft, covering most variants of the B-24, LB-30, C-87 and RY. Each title costs US$9.95. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages.
