    The first conversions completed by SAL were for four short nosed Liberators for Coastal Command. All the redundant metal was taken out and replace by plywood. This was a field conversion carried out by the Morris Furniture Company on behalf of the Ministry of Aircraft Production. There were no drawings for this initial conversion. Morris made the plywood noses for the SAL Liberators used by Scottish Airlines, this was calle, "The Morris Nose." Morris were involved from the beginning to the end on the SAL Liberator. Sadly the Morris Archive has no drawings of this but I do know that the company had drawings into the 70's and 80's. An Indian air force Lib flying to Canada collapsed its nosewheel at Prestwick and SAL had the draings to repair the work.
    Enclosed are illustrations on the C-87 conversions carried out in america but Morris did it first as always

    Hi Krakus
    I have a complete set of Liberator manuals, obviously I'm not going to part with them but if there is a specific section you want more info on I can post a scan or two, let me know.
    Cheers
    Gary

    Hi,

    would you happen to have performance and range data sets in these manuals? Would you be willing to scan them and post them?

    Regards

    Pascal

    Hi, Gary
    I do need range/fuel/bomb load data on early Liberators. Would yo very kind to share this very data.
    I have Flight manual on B-24D (1942). But there is a chapter how to low fuel consumption (pp. 128-129) there are not direct figures.
