The Pilots of Thunderbird Field by Scott R. Weaver
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


My grandfather Leo Purinton and his older brother, Cleo Glenn, who went by the name, Jimmy, were World War II instructor pilots at one of the best and most famous pilot training centers in the nation. During the war, US, British and Chinese student pilots came to Thunderbird Field to learn the techniques of flying in war zones and successfully delivering their payloads. Leo Purinton was adamant that these young pilots absorbed the importance of their mission - they were defending their countries and defending freedom. Those young student pilots were the best and the brightest of our nation and had come to Thunderbird to learn from the best instructor pilots our country had to offer.
