Titles: De Havilland Canada DHC-4 Caribou (C-7) No’s 1 and 2

The DHC-4 Caribou is a specialized cargo aircraft with STOL capability, first flown in 1958. De Havilland Canada’s third STOL design was a big step up in size compared to the earlier DHC-2 Beaver and DHC-3 Otter, and was the first twin-engined DHC design. The Caribou, however, was similar in concept in that it was designed as a rugged STOL utility. The Caribou was primarily a military tactical transport that in commercial service found itself a small niche in commercial cargo hauling.

The United States Army ordered 173 in 1959 and took delivery in 1961 under the designation AC-1, which was changed to CV-2 Caribou in 1962. All US military Caribou’s were transferred to the USAF in 1967 as the C-7. A total of 307 aircraft were produced, most destined for military operators.

We offer two titles containing flight manuals for civil and military variants of the Caribou, plus two nice original company brochures. Each title is US$9.95. The files have been copied from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages.
