September 3, 2000 -- From James Dalby:
"Gordon Poon was a very Senior Capt. Nice guy. He defected with a convair 240 to the communists in 1949. At first a hero and later badly mistreated by the red brigades. I met him about 5 or 6 years ago in China after he had been reinstated. He may be deceased.

I would like to thank Dr. Henry Chang Jr., son-in-law of CNAC captain Gordon Poon, for developing the follow link about Gordon Poon:
