China-Burma-India Hump operations started after the Japanese closed down the
Burma Road in April 1942 and finished in November 1945. It cost the lives of
1,314 men and women and destroyed nearly 600 aircraft. The main enemy was
the atrocious weather and lack of navigation aids, rather than enemy
fighters. Nevertheless during this period the operation carried out 167,285
trips and delivered 760,000 tons of cargo. The picture is of the memorial to
those who lost their lives during this operation.
Special scenery and texture files to accompany this charter (included in the
zip file) were written by Alex Nicolson - these recreate the airfields and
radio beacons as they existed during WWII.
