This is broken up into multiple PDF files arranged just like the book by PIC (Pilot in Command). A crew was always referred to based upon the pilot's last name.
PDFs 1 to 9 includes from 6 to 10 crews per PDF, PDFs starting with #10 onwards are grouped in batches of 20 crews per PDF in 10 page groups. PDF sizes range from 1 to 3 Megs and all images are at 72 DPI for web viewing. Original high resolution PDFs (scanned at 300 DPI) can be ordered from the Chapter Secretary for $10.
Two thirds of the way through the book (in the PDF #15) it restarts again with crew names from the beginning of the alphabet.
