Widow of AVG pilot J. R. Rossi
I was just informed of a Facebook page for the 14th Air Force. Guess what...........it doesn't call itself "Flying Tigers" but rather the nickname they had for themselves for many years, "China Hands", before they voted to rename themselves Flying Tigers. That change came about in approximately 1958.

That's great.  I'll join that page.  My interests also extend to the 14th AF.

Hey Tripp.  I think the guy's name is Howard Smith.  It seems like a pretty interesting page.  I'll be searching it for a while and if there are any irregularities, we can take care of it with a little diplomacy.

Certainly, SD!

This new FB page is indeed a refreshing look at American military aviation history in the China-Burma-India theater of WWII.

Thank you, Mr. Howard Smith!
