...the Wild Blue Yonder
The Costa Mesa Historical Society presents its annual
salute to our veterans
with U.S. Army Air Force 1st Lieutenant
David K. Hayward
and author of "A Young Man in the
Wild Blue Yonder" on
Sunday, November 19,
David Hayward, a pilot in the
U.S. Army Air Corps, takes us through his adventures and challenges
as a young man serving his country in World War II. Would he "wash
out" of flying school? Would he survive the dangers and fears of
flying 53 combat missions as pilot of a B-25 medium bomber in the
China-Burma-India Theater of operations? You will experience the
thrill of his solo flight, the frightening day
Mr. Hayward belongs to the
Freedom Committee of Orange County (http://fc-oc.org)
whose members speak to high school students and civic groups to
bring “living history” into the classroom and instill a sense of
patriotism in future generations.
Bring a friend and join us to hear this exciting true story from the WWII!

We wanted you to be among the first to be aware that the Historical Society has released its second book on Costa Mesa History, covering the years 1940-2003. The book tells the story of Costa Mesa’s growth from infancy to its coming of age.
The book is available at the Costa Mesa Historical Society, 1870 Anaheim Ave, 949-631-5918, email@example.com
From the back Cover: Perhaps no one could have foreseen the amazing transformation of Costa Mesa from a sleepy rancho to today’s bustling “City of the Arts.” Along with other Orange County cities, Costa Mesa experienced explosive growth, redevelopment, county bankruptcy, traffic, and environmental issues. While navigating these events, Costa Mesa emerged with its own brand of Southern California cityhood
Give the gift of history and help support the CMHS at the same time!
Lots of books and memorabilia to select from including commemorative plates, paperweights and SAAAB items, note paper, postcards and out of print items.
