“Chet” served in the Air Force & flew pt-19s, B-17s then was picked to transfer to B29. He was in phase training when war ended. Most memorable story was an occasion when mechanics had moved gear retract lever to overhead panel from lower panel, leaving a hole there. He took off and the handle was missing! Plane wasn’t inning and starting to overheat, and Chet finally saw the new switch and flipped it and the gear came up. Overall, “he just loves to fly”.  Thank you for your service Chet!
