The second order tangent bundle T^2M of a smooth manifold M consists of the equivalence classes of curves on M that agree up to their acceleration. Dodson and Radivoiovici showed that in the case of a finite n-dimensional manifold M, T^2M becomes a vector bundle over M if and only if M is endowed with a linear connection.

We have extended this result to M modeled on an arbitrary Banach space and more generally to those Fréchet manifolds which can be obtained as projective limits of Banach manifolds. Various structural properties have been deduced.
