DOUGLAS SBD DAUNTLESS

$9.95

Titles: Douglas SBD Dauntless No’s 1 and 2

The Douglas SBD was developed from a Northrop design and first entered service in 1940. Between 1940 and 1943 it was the US Navy’s principal dive bomber until its eventual replacement by the Curtiss SB2C. Approx 5,936 examples were produced between 1940 and the end of production in July 1944. The most common variants were the SBD-4 and SBD-5, and versions of these were used by the USAAF as the A-24A and A-24B.

We offer two titles which include flight manuals and a maintenance manual for the SBD Dauntless series. Each title is US$9.95. The first title includes flight manuals for the earlier variants, and the second title covers the flight and a maintenance manual for the later variants. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages.
