I recently was given about 20 of the most comprehensive manuals I have ever seen on WW2 warbirds & other airplanes used in WW2. My Grandfather opened and ran a aviation hydraulic shop in Miami and serviced all kinds of military aircraft during the war. He is a true legend and the stories he has told me over the years are priceless. In any case, these manuals are between 3 and 8 inches thick and cover every bolt, screw, wire and weapon system. Their are even diagrams and photos of how to take apart almost any plane to be shipped on a multiple wood pallets. I took a few photos of some of the weapon diagrams from the B25 manual to post here. Their are literally thousands of pages like these from numerous planes and weapon systems. If their is an interest, I will post more. I just thought these were extremely fascinating manuals. At the time, they were all classified & restricted and were issued directly to my grandfather. Many of them even state that it is considered treason to show these documents to anyone.
These manual tell you how to load, sight, take apart ect, all kinds of weapon systems specific to each aircraft as well as every other item on the plane.
I wanted to edit my 1st post in this thread to add some great photos of some sweet Aircraft ammo. These pictures were origionaly posted by Mr. Tony Williams from his amazing collection latter in this very thread. I wanted to also add them to the begining of the thread to give new visiters a taste of what follows. Thanks so much for spicing things up Tony!!!
