Combat Aircrewman School, NAS Hutchinson, Kansas.
PB4Y's were used for training.   More than 2500 acres were chosen as the site for the Hutchinson Naval Air Station in 1942, according to “Survey Report of World War II Air Bases in Kansas” by Susan Ford. Construction for the base began in October 1942. An additional 3,900 acres were leased for up to 20 auxiliary landing fields. Hutchinson was constructed to provide primary training for the Naval Air Reserve.  Until the station was completed, the Navy made temporary use of the town's municipal airport (located east of the town). NAS Hutchinson was commissioned at the end of 1942. The first training planes used were N2S-3s & N2S-4s, which were later replaced by N2S-5s.  The station acquired another school training crews of PB-4Y Liberator bombers in 1944.  At its wartime peak, Hutchinson had a complement of over 5,000 personnel. The 1944 US Army/Navy Directory of Airfields described NAS Hutchinson as having a 5,000' hard-surface runway.  
During WW2, Hutchinson had three satellite airfields: Hutchinson NOLF #1 (4 miles NE), Newton NOLF (3 miles N of Newton), and Searcy NOLF (near Stillwater, OK). Other sources indicate that Hutchinson had as many as 18 auxiliary fields at one point during WW2. 
Hutchinson NAS was disestablished at the end of WW2.

Jiminy Cricket
Jiminy Cricket is the Walt Disney version of "The Talking Cricket" (Italian: Il Grillo Parlante), a fictional character created by Carlo Collodi for his classic novel Pinocchio, which was adapted into an animated film by Walt Disney in 1940. Originally an unnamed, minor character in Collodi's novel, he was translated in the Disney version into a comical and wise partner who accompanies Pinocchio on his adventures, having been appointed by the Blue Fairy to serve as the official conscience  for Pinocchio.

"Jiminy Cricket!" (sometimes rendered as "Jiminy Christmas!") was originally a minced oath for Jesus Christ. The name of the character is a play on the exclamation (which itself was uttered in Pinocchio's immediate predecessor, 1937's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs). Another example occurs in the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz. When the group first enters the Wizard's chamber, they are startled by the Wizard's sudden thunder-and-lightning display, and Dorothy  (Judy Garland) cries, "Oh! Oh! Jiminy Crickets!" (Garland also says the expression in her 1938 film Listen, Darling). It had also been used as an exclamation by the Swedish father several times in the 1930 movie Anna Christie. Another time it is used is in the short 1938 cartoon starring Mickey Mouse The Brave Little Tailor. That expression is also Howard Cunningham's catchphrase on Happy Days.

First appearance     Pinocchio (1940) - For the 1940 Disney film, the character was designed by Ward Kimball, who had been very disappointed and was about to leave the Disney studio when much of the work he did for Snow White was cut from the final version of that film. However, Walt Disney persuaded him to stay by giving him the assignment to design Jiminy.
