Advanced Training at Freeman Air Field in Seymour, Indiana

(Continuation of Captain Estes's Memoirs)

"I was sent to Indiana, Freeman Field, Seymour,
Indiana for my advanced training, and it was in
twin engines. It was an AT-10 advanced trainer.
It was built out of plywood, and it was a good
flying plane, and it was a good plane to learn in.
I had a good instructor and I was taught all
the things I should know to fly an advanced
trainer. And it was there that I graduated and
got my wings and my second lieutenant bars.
I graduated in the class of 44C; in other words,
that was 1944 and the month was March."

(To be continued.)
