JIMMIE CHEN (19??-1943)
(CNAC 194? - November 19, 1943)

January 2, 2001. From Jim Dalby


Jim Charville, Jimmie Chen, copilot. While making a night landing at Kunming, raining with 100' ceiling, had landing gear trouble, decided to pull up after making a pass at field. Pulled up in the wrong heading and crashed into a hill just west of the city. All crew burned and mutilated. Source Kirkpatrick log. 11/19/43 C-47 #63. I did not know him (Charville) and do not know his date of hire.
