Found this today while searching for records about my dad, who graduated from Mesa del Rey, class 44-J. The only other info I have is that he was discharged from Amarillo Army Air Corps Base in Nov 1945. He was from Pittsburgh, Pa

I'm also researching my dad, who did his Primary training at King City during Apr-May 1942. Just visited King City [Oct 2010] collecting info from city and the collection of Mickey Muzinich, a former instructor for Mesa del Rey. If you have similar interests, call me at 412-979-2938 or by email at

I have a Kings Log of Class 44-J, Mesa Del Rey, King City,Ca. Would like to find a home for it with any of the personel serving at that time and location.

My Uncle Mickey was a flight instructor and I helped him publish his story about this time of history. His book is called 'Keep em Flying' by Mickey Muzinich as told to Connie Hammill. I hope everyone enjoys his fun stories.
