    This Might be Useful to Warbird Restorers

    It's the flight operating instructions for a B-36A.

    Things were different back then....here's how you use the emergency nose gear activation hook.

    Well they'd have to start by finding one. Even when they were still flying the B-36A's were all converted to RB-36Es.
