WWII history is incorrect - applied to wrong airport[edit]

It appears that the entire WWII history section of this article actually applies to the Mesa Del Rey Airport in King City.

According to the Palo Alto Weekly, the Palo Alto Airport opened in 1935 (not 1940), and was closed during WWII (not surprising, given it's proximity to Moffett Field, and the short runway length at the time.) http://www.paloaltoonline.com/weekly/morgue/2001/2001_07_04.pairhistory.

According to this site, there was another "Palo Alto Airport" located in King City, which was used for training during WWII. http://www.airfieldsdatabase.com/WW2/WW2%20R26c1%20AL-CA.htm

That airport is currently known as Mesa Del Rey Airport, and the WWII history section of it's Wikipedia article is almost identical. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mesa_Del_Rey_Airport
