Al Seward held an old, thick book tight against his chest.
The title, Pilot’s Flying Log Book, was written in capital gold lettering.
“It’s a very special book. I really value it,” said Seward, who lives at Providence Place. “When I die, this will be the record of my flying career. It’s got everything in it.”
His first flight recorded in his logbook was on Oct. 3, 1941 at age 18 for air experience. That first flight was in a Tiger Moth bi-plane.
His last flight written in the book was on Sept. 2, 1988 in Lisbin, Portugal. He was 65 years old at the time.
