Last March in Guilin, China, the symbol of a rare cooperation between China and the United States went on display at the Flying Tiger Heritage Park.
From November 1941 until the end of the war, the airline and the Army carried 650,000 tons of supplies into China.
On November 17, 1942, on one of his first China missions, Jimmie flew with Captain John J.
He spent six months preparing China for this event and says the Chinese were enthusiastic about the project.
Eventually, it will be housed in a new building that displays memorabilia from the China National Aviation Corporation and other U.S. participants in the Chinese war against Japan.
