De HAVILLAND DH100 & DH115 VAMPIRE

$9.95

Titles: De Havilland Vampire Nos 1 to 5

The DH100 Vampire was the second British jet powered fighter and first flew in September 1943, but length of development meant it did not see service in that conflict.

Designed for simplicity the aircraft used the molded plywood construction pioneered by the Mosquito. Designed as a fighter it was mainly used for ground attack in RAF service. A two-seat cabin seating side-by-side was used for the Training role and for the night-fighter role, under the DH115 designation.

At its peak, 19 RAF squadrons flew the Vampire. Over 3,400 were built in England and over 1,100 were assembled under licence in various countries overseas. In all at least 31 air arms flew the aircraft at some time.

We offer five titles for various marks of the De Havilland Vampire. Each title contains three or more flight manuals (usually titled Pilot’s Notes) for the Vampire. Each file has been scanned from the original flight manuals and retains any colour pages. Each title is US$9.95.
