Got a couple of pilots from the 17th today to make three flights. I now have “C” Flight, no more weaver. I guess I am glad.

Four pilots of the 17th Squadron—John Vogel, Charles Burris, Bob Krantz, and another unidentified, plus Bob Newman from the 3d Pursuit, were assigned to the 21st to reach the 18 required for three flights. Four days later, for an unknown reason, Burns’ buddy Bob Clark had taken over “C” Flight, though as a 41-C graduate he was junior to Burns.
