These are photos taken by Archie E. Newton Jr. of Capt. Steve Kusak. The 3rd photo contains 3 others, of which "Kusak"(who is on far right), and "Wirth" are the only names on it. I believe the name Wirth is supposed to be the 2nd from left. I have one other photo of the same person but it has no name on it. I did not see the name "Wirth" on the CNAC Pilots and Co-Pilots list, but perhaps somebody may know of him.
