Flying lessons, commentary by Dadster
"dated May 10th 1942 on back of photo, probably his Mother's handwriting
This photo was taken at the side of their house, the Roanoke airport "Woodrum Field" is at their back and would be visible in the distance if not for the big tree. Dad used to save his money and go to the airport for flying lessons as often as he could. He told me one flight took him over the house where he sighted his dad in their garden digging potatoes. He flew low and buzzed C.W. Senior and his dad threw a dirt clod at him because he knew it was him. He did love to fly."
