Crossing the Himalayas - the world's highest mountains - was dangerous and difficult under the best conditions. But air crews flying heavily-loaded C-46 transports faced the dangers of bad weather, high altitude and hostile Japanese aircraft while flying vitally-needed supplies over the "Hump" to Allied Forces in China. Although hundreds of aircraft were lost, the men who flew these missions have never been fully recognized for their bravery.
