Two big China’s Wings events this weekend in the Seattle Area.
Priceless opportunities to get your copy of China’s Wings signed by 100-year old Moon Chin!
- September 28, 2013 at the Seattle Museum of Flight, located at 9404 E. Marginal Way S., Seattle (Exit 158 off Interstate 5): Alongside Moon Chin, I’ll be giving a slide show and speaking about China’s Wings and the China National Aviation Corporation (CNAC) as part of a museum event devoted to celebrating CNAC and the American Volunteer Group (AVG). Here’s a link to the Museum’s event page. Hope to see you there!
- 29 September, 2013 at 12:00 noon, “CNAC Day” at the Historic Flight Foundation, located at the Paine Field Airport (10719 Bernie Webber Drive
Mukilteo, WA 98275) just outside Everett, Washington. Here’s the HFF’s event announcement. As above, I’ll be appearing with Moon Chin, but what’ll make this event special is the presence of an actual airplane that once flew the Hump for the China National Aviation Corporation–as CNAC No. 100. Read about the HFF’s beautiful restoration of this aircraft, and be sure to check out a picture of it after a Dinjan mishap in 1944.
I hope to see you there!
Moon Chin might be the most amazing World War II pilot you’ve never heard of… learn more about him by perusing my “Moon Chin” category.
