Now known as CHU-XIONG ZHOU

(CNAC 194? - 1949)

Your CNAC Web Editor received the following note from Chu-Xiong Zhou.

Oct. 2nd. 2000
Dear Mr. Moore
My name is Chu-Xiong Zhou. When I was a co-pilot in CNAC it was spelled Chu-Hsung Chou. For short, people usually just call me "C.H.". I am very glad to get the CNAC flight attendants picture from the web site. I recognize four stewards in the picture. (Click here to see the pictuere and those women that were identified.)

I have also sent you the following picture taken on the last day CNAC evacuated from Shanghai to Hong Kong. At the end of the run-way: Lung Hwa Airport Shangahi. It was the middle of May 1949. As you can see in the picture I was in an American GI uniform with a CNAC symbol on my hat, which was placed on top of a run-way light. The picture was taken by another co-pilot Mr. S.Y. Hsung. Both of us were flying C-46s. The last two cargo ships to leave the mainland. Hope you like the picture.

Zhou is now teaching Tai Chi in Everett, Washington. His students call him "Master Joe." Prior to flying for CNAC he was trained to fly P-51 Mustangs in Arizona. WWII had ended when he completed his training.

His wife, Cynda Wang, was a CNAC stewardess.
