Hi All

I thought it might be useful to have a topic where people can post links and so on to sources of information like technical drawings, manuals and so on. I have many, too many actually which indicates a colossal consumption of time. In no specific order here are some links to start things off:

https://aircorpslibrary.com/

http://www.aircraft-manuals.com/aiblendr.html

https://m-selig.ae.illinois.edu/ads.html

https://www.luftfahrt-archiv-hafner.de/

http://www.p40warhawk.com/Models/Technical/Technical.htm

http://fleet-club.com/ifc/Resources.html

https://www.cubclub.org/technical-information/blueprints/9-technical-information

Please note that not all of these resources are free.

Perhaps more can be added to the list by others and perhaps Ratz may deem it desirable to make the topic a sticky?

Pilatus Aircraft drawings incredibly kindly made available by the manufacturer themselves.

These are a bit more general, but:
Magic NACA Archive:
http://naca.central.cranfield.ac.uk/

Also NTRS:
https://ntrs.nasa.gov/search.jsp?R=20050189209

NACA did a whole bunch of reports on various aircraft. Some of these reports are on Hip Pocket already, but I don't know if they all are. Plus these sites have gobs of info on airfoils, tests of controls and flaps with real airplanes, etc.
