Title: Fairchild C-119 Flying Boxcar

The C-119 was a new version of the earlier C-82 with more powerful engines and a re-located flight deck which first flew in 1947. Initially designated XC-82B it was re-designated C-119 and entered large scale USAF service. Over 1050 were eventually produced and it was also supplied to numerous foreign air arms under the Military Assistance program.

This title contains two flight manuals for the C-119, one for the initial production variant and one for the last production variant. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages.


This title contains:

  • USAF Handbook of Flight Operating Instructions for the C-119B, C-119C and R4Q-1, AN 01-115CCA-1 dated 18-1-50 revised to 13-7-50, with approx 71 pages. (This is probably one of the very first C-119 manuals and covers the initial production versions.)
  • USAF Flight Handbook for the C-119G, T.O.1C-119G-1 dated 1-7-55, revised to 15-3-56, with approx 377 pages. (The C-119G was the last production version and used the Wright R-3350 engine in place of the Pratt & Whitney R-4360).
