Titles: Republic P-47 Thunderbolt No’s 1 and 2

Probably the most famous aircraft ever produced by the Republic Aviation Corporation the P-47 was a continuation of the family started by the P-35 and continued with the P-43. First flown in 1941 the P-47 was a large aircraft by the standards of the day and the equally large number of over 15,000 was eventually produced. The P-47 was one of the few WW2 piston-engined fighters to remain in service after WW2, and was only phased out of Air National Guard service in 1954.

We offer two titles covering the P-47 Thunderbolt, containing flight manuals for various variants of the aircraft. Each title is US$9.95. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages.
