  • WWII Air Corps Pilot Training Log - Harrell Field, Camden, Arkansas - 1942

     Interesting log book for a pilot trainee who FAILED !  Training conducted by contractor Wiggens-Marden Aero Corp.  Only four pages completed from May 1, 1942 to June 2, 1942, for a total of nearly 16 hours.  Shown at the left is the front cover (top) and right page of last entries (below).  Seems he flew a number of different PT-17 Stearmans and had 6 checkrides.  First check ride says he "hit the washing machine" and the last two seem to indicate that he is beyond hope!  Condition is very good.
