Title: McDonnell FH-1 Phantom 

The FH-1 was the first US Navy carrier-based jet and first flew in 1945 but in common with many early jet fighters suffered from limited range and poor performance. Consequently only 60 were built and they remained in service for only three years.

To maximise value, this title contains the Flight Manual for the FH-1 Phantom and two flight manuals for the Phantom’s later bigger brother, the F2H Banshee. The files have been scanned from the original manuals and retain any colour pages.



This title contains:

  • US Navy Pilot’s Handbook for the FH-1, AN 01-245FA-1 dated 15-5-49 revised to 1-9-49, with approx. 47 pages.
  • US Navy Pilot’s Handbook for the F2H-1, AN 01-245FBA-1 dated 15-11-48 with approx. 36 pages.
  • US Navy Flight Handbook for the F3H-2, AN 01-245-FCB-501 dated 1-5-61 with approx. 142 pages.
