Flying Tigers

Release Date: October 8, 1942
Director: David Miller
Running time: 106 minutes

Jim Gordon is the head of a group of American pilots working for the Chinese government against the invading Japanese tow years prior to Pearl Harbor. Hothead Woody Jason joins them but despite being a hotshot flyer, he's also a liability. When he causes the death of veteran pilot Hap Smith, the rest ostracize him and only an ultimate sacrifice will wipe the slate clean.

Chapter 32 Events

  • We are hoping to set up a fabric covering seminar or classes later this year. Due to material cost and preparation items we may have to charge a small fee to cover items such as frames to cover and materials. I would like to keep this no more than $20-$30 for members. It should include basic covering as well as rib stitching. Fellow chapter members will teach this. How many people would be interested? Please contact a chapter officer.
  • We have a number of members who are proficient at MIG and to some degree TIG welding. Please contact Don Doherty on helping with other members learning to weld.
  • Volunteers are needed to help grass cutting once a month. During active growing season the grass needs to be cut once a week. During the dry season this sometimes drops to every two to three weeks. Volunteers need to be checked out on the mower. Cutting time takes about 1.5-2 hrs. Right now we have 2 or three people and need a couple more that are reliable. I would like to spend some of my weekends flying instead of cutting the ARC grass. Please contact Don Doherty.
