6:02   |   Pilot Richard Lewis decided not to stay active, but he stayed in the Reserve with a unit at a small airfield. He was pushed out of that when he got a promotion and he eventually wound up with a position that he liked very much, so much that he stayed in until he reached thirty years service.
