    I'm looking for the SBU-1 pilot's handbook.
    I know it exists because I copies about 10 pages from it at the Smithsonian, but I did not get the whole thing for some reason.
    Rare 1935 Chance Vought Aircraft Pilots Handbook SBU-1
    is evidence that at least one copy is "out there."

    Please let me know if you have it, or anything else from 1936 or before. What I have uncovered is that except for the SBU-1, the oldest US manuals are from 1937. There were only 4 that year.
    B-17
    SBU-2
    TBD-1
    NJ-1
    I have all 4, but I'm trying to figure out if there is anything even older. 1936? Anything besides the SBU-1 from 1935?

    For the RAF, the oldest Pilot's Notes I know is a Hurricane from 1939. (Not counting older erection manuals.)
    Thanks.
