McKnight has displayed a constant devotion to duty which has been an inspiration to others. On numerous occasions, he has worked long hours under the most rigorous conditions in order to keep aircraft on schedule. On numerous occasions he has been credited with being solely responsible for the successful completion of a Sortie. His excellent trade knowledge, resourcefulness and willingness to work long and hard, make him an outstanding member of his trade. First Log book starts in Jan of 1944 (24 pgs WWII dates) to Jan of 1953 and each and every page is filled in (250+ pgs). This particular log book also has numerous original photos pasted inside, including photos of McKnight, the Flight Crew, Planes, McKnight in winter flight suit, pictures taken in tropical military summer wear, photo of Grave….photo of 426 Transport Squadron Plane….Photo of McKnight standing outside RCAF Plane….photo of large machine gun with skull…photo of Wake Island from Plane. This Log book was well used, it has loose pages, torn pages but its all there and just a wealth of info on planes, squadrons, places etc. Second Logbook is from Jan of 1953 to May of 1964. There is one photo of a plane and inserted lists of planes flown, its 80% filled in front to back. The 3rd Logbook is from Dec of 1964 to Dec of 1975 (200pgs of entries) and the last Log book is from Jan of 1976 to June of 1977 (36 pgs) . Also included is a wartime “AG Half Wing, this is the padded style (3 dimensional) and finally, there are pages from his Military File with lots of background info and including copy of letter from Dept. of National Defence, citing his “Enclosed Certificate of Queens Commendation” as well as copy of “Honors and Awards with his citation for the Queens Commendation. Log books are well used and show much wear and tear (first 2 book are heavily taped) but they are complete. This is really a fantastic insight to McKnights Flying career in both WWII, Korea and on. There are no battle entries and only 24 pages of Logbook 1 are WWII entries, but there is a whole whack of info within these pages of his full flying career.
