Part of a broader investigation concerned with flyaway kits, or sets of spare parts that enable squadrons to maintain their own airplanes for a given time period when cut off from outside supply and maintenance. Former RAND studies (RM-1490 and RM-2062) dealt with flyaway-kit tests for the B-47 and F-86H. The present paper describes the history and results of a subsequent kit test for the F-100D. It is hoped that from the F-100D results, even better flyaway kits will emerge.
