Wings Across America 2008: The Journey of the SQuiRT, The Logbooks
Each registered pilot added one page to the SQuiRT’s logbook. By the end of the five-year journey, three logbooks were complete. On their page, the pilots included statements regarding the weather and the success or problems of the flight. Many pilots supplemented factual details of their flights with photographs and newspaper clippings.
Shown here are samples of the many entries that fill these pages.

I flew the Squirt in Oklahoma but I can’t remember my logbook entry or the date for that matter! It was at Baxter Field, Midwest City, Oklahoma. I think we also enclosed photos of the event, but again, years have passed and my memory isn’t clear. Is there any way I can be sent photos of the logbook or our club photos? Thank you so much! This was one of the most fun times I’ve had in the hobby!
Hi, Chris! Yes, it is possible to get a picture of the logbook entry, as well as pictures provided by you/your club. Most of the photos are organized by the pilot number and club location, and there is no index to the logbook. In other words, it’s going to take us a bit to sort through these to find you, but it is doable! We’ll get them to you later this week at the email address you provided for your comment.
