Flight Test Certification of Colonel Joseph Laughlin, May 1944

Title

Flight Test Certification of Colonel Joseph Laughlin, May 1944

Subject

One of several instrument flight tests Colonel Laughlin would complete in the Army Air Corps

Description

In order to make sure pilots were combat ready and effective, the Army Air Corps required Instrument Flight Tests be completed every six months. This one, completed at the 362nd Fighter Group's base at UK Station 412 in Headcorn, Kent, England, is significant because it lists his good friend and Group Commander, Colonel Morton Magoffin, as his Instrument Check Pilot.
