Aprrox. 7" X 4" oblong Pilot's log. Black leather log book with gilt stamped "Pilot Log" on front cover. Hinges are broken and text block loose but still attached. Leather back cover is chewed at lower corner edge. Approx. 54 pages of the log used to record flight information. One page has an undated flight plan stapled. On the identification section page in front is Donavan Wood's name and address in Muncie Indiana with a phone number listed from the nearby town of New Castle Indiana. The identification page is signed by Mr. Wood at bottom with Book #1 and Date 1946 at bottom. The log begins August 19th. The typical aircraft recorded was a "Piper." Most of the flights in 1946 originated from New Castle and were going to "Local" places. Later entries record flights leaving from other midwest locations like Bowling Green, Cincinnati, Ashland Kentucky and other places. Types of aircraft listed in the log include the "Luscombe, "Escoupe", "Aeronca", "PT23 Fairchild", "PT19", "T-Craft", "Cub Cruiser", etc. Few years are indicated next to the month and date but the log appears to have relatively continuos entries into 1950. At the start of 1950 the type of air craft and locations changed. January 1, 1950 Mr. Wood is flying a "Mooney" aircraft and departing from Atlanta. After 1950 the entries are sporadic. The aircraft changes back to a "Piper" and the pilot is departing from and returning from several Southern Cities. Included with the log is a picture, presumably of Donavan Wood and his wife? There is an inscription on the back, "Relaxing at Grandmas (before they moved to Eaton) note the pipe.". Bookseller Inventory #
