Tiger still going strong

Luo presented bouquets, certificates of recognition and souvenirs to three Flying Tiger veterans and a Chinese-American WWII veteran, all in their 90s, and told them that China would never forget their contribution to the Chinese war effort and heroic deeds. Dillon, who flew over the Himalayan "Hump" from 1944 to 1946 as a military transport aircraft pilot, said, "My part was minimal. If I did anything, I consider it a privilege, not an honor, to be able to do what I did." LIA ZHU / CHINA DAILY
