    I just scanned this manual.

    PILOT'S HANDBOOK
    MODEL TBF-1 AIRPLANE
    MODEL TBM-1 AIRPLANE
    CONTRACT NO. LL-91367
    CONTRACT NO. 98837
    ENGINE NO. R-2600-8 OR R-2600-8A
    AVENGER 1
    RELEASED BY' THE BUREAU OF AERONAUTICS NAVY DEPARTMENT

    It is about 114 pages, including two color line drawings at the back.
    I don't know the date - can anyone estimate the date for us?
    As far as I know this is the first upload of this manual to the Internet. I had to shrink it from 59MB down to 10MB, which caused moderate loss of quality. If any commercial vendors want to contact me I will trade for the full resolution version.

    I'm new to the forum but I have the actual manual with a letter that is attached dated 1944. I will post pics ASAP.
