Friday find: Flight thru Instruments, 1945

How awesome is this rare military flight manual from 1945? That front cover couldn’t be more perfect.

An excerpt from the foreword:

The pilot who cannot fly through instruments, therefore, consigns himself and his plane to a part time job and places both in the premodern era where usefulness was limited by the amount of daylight and visibility.
