Korean War Flight Log
Flight log books are a staple of any type of flying, whether it's a civilian or military flight. This particular log records the type of plane and the specific plane the pilot is flying (under the "model" and "Bureau Number"); the type of flight ("Character of Flight"); the number of hours flown; and most importantly, the type of landing. This last category was the score the pilot received from the carrier's deck landing officer on how well the pilot landed on the flight deck. The higher the number, the better the landing.
