Kunming remembers the Flying Tigers
from Air & Space Magazine
This December, the city of Kunming, a metropolis of 4.6 million in southwest China, is celebrating a group of Americans who 75 years ago saved the city from devastation. The First American Volunteer Group, better known as the Flying Tigers, was a short-lived unit, but during the seven months they flew combat, under the leadership of Claire Lee Chennault, they destroyed almost 300 Japanese attacking airplanes.
