Title: Northrop YC-125 Raider

The Northrop YC-125 was developed from the unsuccessful N-23 Pioneer and was ordered by the USAF for troop training (YC-125A) and Arctic rescue (YC-125B). Only 23 were produced, entering service in 1950 and being declared surplus in 1955.

This title contains the USAF flight manual and maintenance manual for the YC-125 along with a nice manufacturer’s brochure on the civil predecessor to the YC-125, the Northrop Raider. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages.
