Title: Grumman F7F Tigercat

The Grumman F7F was the first twin-engined fighter to be deployed by the US Navy, and although it first flew in 1943 it was too late to see active service in WW2. 364 were built, and it saw service in Korea as a night fighter and attack aircraft. Due to its size only a very late model was certified for carrier operation, and the fleet was retired quite quickly in 1954.

To maximise value, this title includes the flight manual for the F7F Tigercat, plus a flight manual for it’s smaller single-engined brother the F8F Bearcat. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages.
