'100 Fair Pilots' (and 10 for good measure)

Always something new on the internet! Researching some of the little-known members of the American Volunteer Group (Flying Tigers), I found this photo of Pat Cavanah as he, Dick Rossi, and John Hennessy were celebrating in New York in August 1942 after their return from China. Louise Hennessy is standing behind them.

My file on the 110 military pilots recruited for the AVG and the Chinese Air Force flight school in the summer and fall of 1941 is posted on the Annals of the Flying Tigers in two sections, from Frank Adkins to Pat Cavanah, and from Bert Christmas to Duke Hedman. I'll continue to add names as time permits.
