Author: Ted Heinsohn, Jr.
Subject: Photos of pilot Henry L. Chovanec and Czechem
Date: Mon Feb 21, 2011 16:54

I am the executor of the estate of one of Henry's nephews who just passed away.
In going through his effects, I happened just today to find a picture of the Lieutenant standing in front of the B-24
I also have a picture of him with his whole crew.
I also have one of his flight logs, a postcard from Muroc Army Air Base, and what I believe to be his training wings and his pilot's wings.
Let me know if you are interested.
