Here’s a great article from FoxNews on the “Hump Airmen” — the guys that flew the “Skyway to Hell”  or “The Hump” — the route from Burma to Western China over the Himalayas to supply the Nationalists with supplies against the Japanese prior to and during World War II. These are the guys the Flying Tigers were often trying to protect.

It’s great pulp material that I was thinking of using for my China-oriented Hollow Earth Expedition…who knows? Maybe some of those planes found themselves somewhere else entirely…Shangri-la? The Inner World..?
