Thanks to a connection with Chinese author, Liu Xiao Tong, and Youngchi Tang, the son of a CNAC pilot, we now have additional information about K.L. Yang:


Bob (Willett) and Tom (Moore),

I have just finished talking to Mr. Liu on the phone. This way is the fastest way. Here is what I got from him.

• K. L. Yang's Chinese name is 楊光鎏 (traditional Chinese), or 杨光浏 (simplified Chinese).

• During WWII time, his English name could be Kwang Liu Yang or Kwong Liu Yang.

• If his name is spelled in Chinese Pinyin in Mandarin pronunciation, it would be Guang Liu Yang. However, Chinese Pinyin did not exist until 1950's.

• There is no full English first name for K. L. Yang in CNAC. In CNAC, most Chinese employees only used initials.

• Mr. Liu will check with a son of another radio operator who knew K. L. Yang to see if there is more information about K.L. Yang. However Mr. Liu won't be able to call the person in a few days because he left the phone number of that person at home and he is currently out of town.

Mr. Liu would like to know which specific area are you going to search (for CNAC #60). If you have any questions, please let me know. We will try our best to assist you.

Best regards and wishes to you and the team in the search,


Stay tuned -- more will come....
