    Has anyone fully translated the Japanese Manual for the Super Famicom version?

    I'm particularly interested any references to "Lyle Starbuck" and the context they are mentioned in?

    Not mentioned in the Super Famicom manual.

    To the best of my knowledge, it comes from the Mega CD manual and nowhere else. (There's a picture of Blair that has 'Hotshot' under it, with Lyle Starbuck in parentheses.)

    The manual you linked to is the Super Famicom version (Japanese equivalent of the Super Nintendo.) The clip is from the Mega CD manual (Japanese equivalent of the Sega CD.)

    Graduated this year from military academy with good grades, and just assigned to the Tigers Claw. There are great expectations of his contributions.

    Bluehair being called Second Lieutenant Lyle "Eagle" Starbuck? (not sure of the exact spell since it isn't in English, though)
