Magic Chef Oven Pilot flames/blows out

The pilot light in my 65 Overlander's Magic Chef oven blows itself out after the oven reaches it's set temp. You can hear a "whoosh" when the burner turns off and the subsequent rush of air, blows the pilot out. Help! What gremlin is in my oven?!
Thanks for any input...

I decided to shut off the gas supply to the pilots on the stove and oven. In additon to not having to deal with blow outs more importantly I just didn't want to worry about remembering to light them when I turn the gas on at the bottle or draining my bottle if I forgot to turn the supply valve off. I feel more secure just using a hand lighter.

I don't think using your lighter would work to well with the oven but I too use one for the burners. I'm not an expert on this but I would look at the position of the pilot, maybe it was hit during cleaning. Another thought is to clean it out, rust, corrosion or crud can build up and reduce the flame.

I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it.
