The Civil Air Patrol honored a pilot who earned his wings a long time ago.

They renamed their flight operations center at Asheville Regional Airport for Lieutenant Colonel Robert Augur.

Colonel Augur flew three different types of bombers during World War II, and he's a big supporter of the local CAP Composite Squadron.

He was very surprised to find out the new facility has been named in his honor.

He says for him, the military life was the only way to fly.
