US Army Air Force
USAAF Booklet of Flight Training Memoranda, 224th Base Unit Sioux City 1944-5
This is an original WWII-era US Army Air Force booklet of memoranda published by the command in charge of B-17 pilot training at the 224th Base Unit Sioux City Iowa. The 1/2 inch thick booklet is a compilation of directives issued during 1944-45 to pilots regarding B-17 flight procedures. It provides great insight into what was important to know about flying and training on the B-17 during that period.
It is in good condition given its age. The cover edges are curled and the pages have yellowed. This booklet was written, illustrated, and compiled on the air base and was not a professionally-published document, which adds to its uniqueness.
