My Dad, Truman Lucas, was a member of Pilot Class 42-I. After graduation he flew with the 5th Ferry Command out of Love Field, Dallas, Texas until deployed to China. After the war, he made the USAF a career retiring in Nov 1969 as a Colonel. He flew the Berlin Airlift, served on the Air Staff at the Pentagon, attended the Air War College, was the Air Force Plant Rep at both Douglas and Boeing Aircraft Companies, and was project manager for the S4B Stage of the Saturn Lunar Missiles use in the Moon Landings among many other interesting and varied assignments.

I'm interested in corresponding or talking with others interested in the Sergeant Pilot Program. I can be contacted at email

I have a copy of this class book.
