CB are you referring to the T-11 now side number 74? Or do you include any Vampire - single or dual seat? I have collected some material about Australian Vampires, particularly the trainer dual seater and of course the RAN FAA Vampire variants. Some material (for example a Kiwi PIlot story about single seater Vampires) is no longer online sadly.

SpazSinbad - all types of Vamp, single and two-seater. I have a mixture of first hand stories and those told by a close friend or relative.
Thanks!

Links to Microsoft OneDrive Website are for DIRECT FREE downloads of the PDFs cited. The Vampire PDF is easy enough however the very large 4.4Gb PDF (for context of the Vampire in the RAN Fleet Air Arm) is a bit odd so please go to the RANFAAAA website URL for directions.

Use the 'Download' text button at top of screen to then use the SAVE AS function to first download the PDF to your computer. Do not read online - especially for very large PDFs (go to RANFAAAA URL for directions).

Please use the web browser EDGE in Windows - do not use Internet Explorer as these URLs will not work nowadays (IE 11 being EDGEd out).

SpazSinbad, what an amazing PDF 'scrapbook'. Thanks so much for the link. Who needs to sleep when you have stuff like this to stay up and read?

Thank goodness (is it the BIG PDF 4.4Gb?) did not put you to sleep, unlike the BIG BLUE SLEEPING PILL (USN NATOPS - later versions had a blue cover apparently). Regarding the Vampire section I would be happy to expand on any parts written by me about the 'precession during take off of the attitude indicator and the 'three needle altimeter' (some RAN Vampires did not have the 10K flag IIRC). There were two distinct Vampire variants in the RAN FAA. One had dual AIs which meant with the seat down instrument the flying right hand on control column obscured the AI. Nice.
