Page from the Westover Sketchbook

Capt. Johnson penned the daily logs in longhand and Rarey added illustrations as needed. The text on this page is as follows:

"Lts. Donovan and Peterson returned from their long stay at the modification center in Evansville, Ind. Perfect flying weather held out from 0700 until after dark. Capt. Douglas, Lts. Liston, Bayle, McLachlan, Moist, and Myers opened the night flying season - so the worst is here - with a six-ship formation ride that lasted until 2230.

"Two missions were finished this morning before a lowering ceiling necessitated the cessation of flying. Rain, sleet and snow arrived about 1300. Lts. Henry and Matthews have taken over the AT-6 for the week end and are taking the instrument course. The ping pong tournament is getting into the final stages. Lts. McLachlan and Collins took on all comers in doubles and are now lobbying for their hobby - a doubles tournament."
