The Flying Tiger Historical Organization promotes continued friendship, cultural understanding, and cooperation between our peoples by developing the Flying Tiger Heritage Park and restoring General Claire L. Chennault’s Command and Operations Cave. Furthermore earlier this year a C47 named "Buzz Buggy" was acquired through a generous donation to the Flying Tigers Historical Organization to fly the route over the Hump one more time. The airplane departed from Australia on August 15, 2016 and is planning to fly through Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar and "across the Hump" to Kunming, then on to Guilin, China. The destination for this historic aircraft is to be the main exhibition display at the Flying Tiger Heritage Park and Museum in Guilin, China. On the 4th day of the flight a catastrophic engine failure urged to crew to land with a single engine in Surabaya (Indonesia). Enormous efforts are being made to replace the damaged engine and finish the Hump Flight in the coming weeks. Donations are encouraged and necessary to complete this historic endeavor.
