On July 20th, 1929 aviation in China had progressed to the point of needing funding and mergers with outside corporations. China Airways Federal became incorporated and acquired subsidiaries that should have sparked a jump in aviation activity. However, for some reason Chinese aviation did not take off until 1942. Why is there a gap in aviation history from 1929 to 1942? At the time Shanghai had become a pulsating vivacious attraction to all. It is possible, perhaps, that the lure and draw of the city captivated the imagination so much the desire to fly was overshadowed, causing wings to fold and pilots to be grounded. One can only imagine if those yearning to take to the sky were seduced by the succubae nature of Shanghai in the 1930’s. [Lelia Pollett]
