IMPORTANT NOTE: I own a copy of the pilot transient register
from Peterson Field that covers the dates February 22, 1929
to August 1, 1940. There is a seven year overlap between the
Peterson register and the Davis-Monthan register.
Yes, some of the same pilots signed both books (e.g. Eddie
Brooks, Art Goebel, Roscoe Turner, H.C. Lippiatt, etc.), but
I haven't had time yet to database the Peterson register and
do any comparisons. That will be my next project.
