Chinese Air Cadets Win Wings In U.S.

For many months China has been sending thousands of her young men to aviation schools in America. Here, from expert United States Army Air Force instructors they learn to fly every type of combat plane. Learn to handle everything from training ships to the biggest bombers.

Now, seven thousand miles from home they experience the day for which they long have worked, graduation. And to these eager young men of China graduation means more than official recognition of ability it means that finally China, their China, is prepared to meet the Jap invader on even terms.

From Major General P.T. Mow (Mao Pang-Chu, Peter Mow) Vice Commissioner of Aeronautics for China cadets receive their wings. Become full fledged officers in the Chinese Air Force. Aerial salute for the graduating class from a squadron of fast P-38s and a feminine salute from modern daughters of the new China. This say the boys is worth working for.
