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.

This report is part of the RAND Corporation Paper series. The paper was a product of the RAND Corporation from 1948 to 2003 that captured speeches, memorials, and derivative research, usually prepared on authors' own time and meant to be the scholarly or scientific contribution of individual authors to their professional fields. Papers were less formal than reports and did not require rigorous peer review.
