WWII Army Air Force Collection - w/downloads


#1

Found this page in the net saying:
Welcome! Here you will find a collection of old books, manuals, pictures, postcards and papers about the United States Army Air Forces (AAF) during World War II. The AAF was sometimes called the Army Air Corps. This is an ever-growing collection of information about Army Air Fields and training facilities, including pilot, navigator, bombardier, radio and gunnery schools.

Among a lot of stuff is this pearl: Bombardier’s Information File (BIF) of 1945

You can get it for free complete or in parts there: aafcollection.info/items/detail.php?key=22
