Title: Douglas C-133 Cargomaster

The C-133 was a turboprop powered advanced transport developed as a result of the impetus given by the Berlin Airlift and the Korean War. Designed to accept every type of equipment in service with the US Army, only 50 examples of two variants were built. The first entered service in 1957 but they were retired in 1971 as a result of fatigue problems in service.

This title contains an early USAF flight manual for the C-133A, and a later flight manual which covers both variants of the Douglas C-133. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages.
