    Are Air Ministry Operation Requirements specifications archived anywhere?

    All,

    Does anyone happen to know if copies of the Operation Requirements documents issued by the Air Ministry to aircraft manufacturers for tender archived anywhere? I'm referring to the documents as listed here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...specifications

    I've trawled through the National Archives and found a few mixed in with the minutes of other documents but not complete archive of the originals.

    Anyone able to help?

    OEB: I think you've answered your own question - they are available at TNA: but often hidden in the documents that the OR refers to. In my experience, the OR for (for example) the aircraft that became the RAF Marathon T.1 was in one of the files referring to conversion of mothballed aircraft. Ditto the Dominie and Proctor.
