Al Bennett, with my very best wishes for an ever sparkling life and all happy landings" -also inscribed (with airplane drawing) by Dick Reeve, another inscription from Bob Chernick, and also inscribed by Lowell Thomas Jr., "Greetings and all the best to pioneer flyer Al Bennett" -- inscriptions are to Alfred Bennett, a pioneer in flight-school aviation, who was at one time a vice president at Taylorcraft light-plane company and who ran a flight school in Hightstown, NJ where he was friendly with a number of luminaries in the aviation world including Wolfgang Langewiesche, Eric Sloane, and William Piper (of Piper Cub fame). Al Bennett's children were also pioneers of a sort - both his son and daughter were the youngest people ever to pilot a plane solo.
