To hrhemann,

Welcome to the Flying Tigers Forum!  As an aid, may I suggest that you consult many of the threads posted to the Forum in the past.  You'll find many answers to your questions here....and the great part is that many of the responses are from Tigers who are still living and who monitor this Forum.

Also, there is much historical information contained in this website, rosters, individual biographies under the squadron sections and many photographs.
Members of this Forum are always glad to help you.

Tripp

Widow of AVG pilot J. R. Rossi
I was out on that lake with some AVG members and Jeff Greene, the Chinese pointed to a spot on the water and said that is where the P-40 is resting. Dick Rossi threw a flower wreath at the spot (I'm attaching a photo and one of a part of the P-40 they have dredged up). That was in 2005 and I have not had any news as to the lifting of the plane out of the water. Jeff said there was a lot of politics involved ... who would do the engineering, where the plane would go after it was out, who would pay for it, and most importantly (apparently) who would get the credit for it.

Here are two links to additional information regarding John Blackburn's P-40 that crashed into Lake Dianchi while on a training exercise in April 1942. They are dated August 2013. Does anyone have additional updates? http://english.peopledaily.com.cn/90786/8366446.html
