Worked all day. Andy Bright (Hollister as co-pilot and Irish as passenger) ground looped a PBO at Elizabeth City, NC. No fire luckily. The plane was pretty badly wrecked though. That makes Hollister’s second — he is really quite scared of those planes — certainly doesn’t give anyone confidence to fly with him. And that goes for just about all the “big-wig” pilots (Academy men) in the squadron. Bunch of old ladies — ought to be left on the ground.
