I've been working on my husband's family tree. This book helped to answer some questions about his great uncle, Melvin L. Holman. My husband's grandmother talked about her younger brother being a cadet and being killed while testing a plane. We would like more information about that incident. If any one knows where we can get more information, please contact us.

Hello Karen, I was looking for information about my uncle and ran into a registry of all accidents involving airplanes. I'm not sure I could find it again, but let me know if you'd like me to try. I found a record of a ground loop on landing when he was training.

By the way, if anyone has a copy of Bruce field class 42-K, I Would like to see it. My other uncle should be in that book. He was killed by sabotage of the plane he was ferrying out of Malta. I have never seen his picture.
