pictures of CNAC in the Chinese Civil War, #1


These photos come from Steve Michiels, son of CNAC pilot Joe Michiels. Steve has been tremendously supportive of China’s Wings, for which I’m very grateful. He recently mailed me a disk with about 20 high resolution photo scans, and I’ll feed them onto the site in the coming days, three at a time.

Two CNAC C-46s and two DC-3s or C-47s on the tarmac, 1946 or 1947. (And a whole lot of others in the background.)
