General Notes:

Who Did All This? The majority (95%), were scanned in by me on trips to the Naval Historical Center in the Washington DC Navy Yard, and at the Historical Section of the US Air Force Museum in Dayton, Ohio.

Those that were not scanned by me, but given to me as gifts have that person's name in Parenthesis; such as (Tommy) for Tommy Thomason, and (Yip) for W. Yip).

Discolored Streaks on some Scans: This unfortunately, was caused by me not properly cleaning my new scanner; and me contaminating the calibration plate with Windex. After getting my scanner replaced under warranty, the problem went away.

Obtaining a Physical (DVD) Copy of the Archive: If you really do want them all in a easy package, contact me via private message on my forum, with your address, and I'll mail out the DVD.

I repeat, send me your address in your PM; or how else am I supposed to mail them out?!?

I shall repeat again:

I repeat, send me your address in your PM; or how else am I supposed to mail them out?!?

Rough Archive Size (As of 5 June 2009):

425 Standard Aircraft Characteristics (General file size of about 5-14~ MB)
354 Characteristics Sheets (General file size of about 2~ MB)
55 Airplane Characteristics and Performance Documents
32 Performance Data Documents
21 Standard Missile Characteristics

For about 3,100~ pages scanned in and available for your pleasure. (this is a low ball estimate based on my knowledge of average document sizes)

Special Note for 5 June 2009: At around 8:54 PM Eastern, I finally finished scanning in and preparing all the raw scans from my August 2008 trip to the US Air Force Museum. I'd have done it faster, but I kept getting distracted by other things...
