Softcover Boeing B-29 Superfortress Airplane Commander Training Manual (AAF Manual No. 50-9), marked as "Restricted," 8 x 10.5, 224 pages, reprinted March 1, 1945. The well-illustrated manual "serves the dual purpose of a training checklist and a working handbook," detailing the aircraft systems as well as techniques and procedures to be used by its commander. In fine condition, with minor splitting to spine and a small circular stain to the upper right corner of the front cover. A four-engined propeller-driven heavy bomber, the B-29 Superfortress was one of the largest and most advanced bombers used during World War II—B-29s dropped the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the only aircraft ever to drop nuclear weapons in combat.
