JACK AU (1924 - 1948)
(CNAC January 8, 1948 - December 21, 1948)
Jack Au was born in 1924 in Hong Kong and was a Chinese national. He joined CNAC on January 8, 1948. He logged 1,080 hours on the DC-4 and 402 hours on the C-47. Prior to CNAC he was trained by the US Army Air Force with 62.55 hours on the PT-16, 72.40 hours on the BT-13A and 106 hours on the AT-6. In addition he had 27.2 hours of night flying during basic and advanced training.
With his background it is easy to see he was an ardent Chinese patriot. Being a Hong Kong native, I think he would be very pleased to have the PRC National Anthem played on his memorial page.
He was killed December 21, 1948 when his plane crashed.
