Title:  Lockheed C-141 Starlifter

In 1961 President John F Kennedy announced that Lockheed Aircraft Corporation was the winner of a contest to design the first US all-jet production military transport. The aircraft was to become the C-141 and first flew in 1963. The aircraft entered service in 1964 and soon began regular trans-Pacific flights to South-East-Asia. The aircraft became the first US jet transport that paratroopers jumped from, and the first to land in Antarctica.

284 examples were built as C-141A models. In 1977 a program was started to stretch the aircraft and 270 examples were put through the Lockheed workshops and converted to the C-141B stretched configuration. The final variant was the C-141C, initiated in 1997, which introduced GPS and a glass digital cockpit. 63 examples were converted to C-141C configuration.

This title contains the flight manuals and associated documents for the first C-141A model, and the later C-141C in USAF service.
