Grumman F6F Hellcat Pilot's Flight Operating Instructions


by: United States Navy
The most successful naval fighter in history, the Grumman F6F Hellcat accounted for nearly 5200 kills during WWII. Designed to replace the F4F Wildcat, the Hellcat featured many improvements including self-sealing fuel tanks, a bullet-proof windscreen, and hydraulic landing gear. The plane was rugged, and carried over 200 pounds of armor. Despite the extra weight, it was maneuverable and fast, thanks to a 2000 hp engine. The F6F boasted six .50 caliber machine guns, and could carry 2000 lbs. of bombs.

Volume One presents this legendary fighter in its first year of operational service – from the combat debut over Marcus Island and the Solomons in August 1943 until the end of the Marianas operation in late summer 1944.
