SCHILLING AFB Kan. (AFPS)
—Two pilots who've had the same
things happen to them since they
entered flight school together in
1941 recently became the first two
captains here to become command
pilots. It takes 3000 flying hours
15 years as a rated pilot and an
all-weather-instrument rating to
become a command pilot.
The two men Capts. David M.
Whayne of the 25th Bomb Sq.
and Walter A. Thomas of tht 44th
Bomb Sq. entered primary flying
school at Muskogee Okla. in Oc
tober 1941. They went on to basic
flying school together at Brady
Texas and later graduated from
the same' advanced flying class.
Then they were stationed to
gether in quick succession at
three stateside bases. They left
the states for England on Sept. 9
1942 and remained overseas in
the same unit for 32 months.
Both made rank of second lieu
tenant later first lieutenant and
finally captain on the same date.
They missed coming home to
gether by just a few days.
Reunited In Texas
Both men remained in civilian
life until Jan. 21 1953 when the
Air Force ordered them to active
duty together at Lackland AFB
Captain Wayne came to active duty
from his home in Greenville Miss.
and Captain Thomas from his
home at Springfield 111.
From Lackland both men were
transferred to Barksdale AFB La.
Later in 1953 still together
they went through pilot observers
school at Ellington AFB Texas.
They were assigned to Schill
ing on the same date. Then in
July they entered the same B-47
pilot training class at McConnell
AFB. They have been with the
40th Bomb Wg. since.
