Title: Fairy Fulmar
The Fairey Fulmar was very similar in configuration to the earlier Fairey Battle, but it was a new design intended as a naval fleet defence fighter with folding wings and eight wing-mounted guns. Long range and heavy armament was more important than speed and agility. The Fulmar entered service in 1940 and at one time 20 Fleet Air Arm squadrons were equipped with the type. By 1942 it was being replaced by single-seat aircraft such as the Seafire and Martlett. It continued in other roles such as reconnaissance, training, convoy escort and night intruder.
This title includes the flight manual (titled Pilot’s Notes) and the maintenance manual (titled Air Publication Volume One – Servicing and Descriptive Handbook) for the Fairey Fulmar, along with the Aircraft Profile for the Fulmar. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages.
