Frank Losonsky, the last known survivor of the American Volunteer Group, better known as the "Flying Tigers", passed away on 6 February 2020, aged 99.
Having served two years in the US Army Air Forces, Losonsky became a crew chief with the 3rd Squadron of the Flying Tigers in 1941.  After the group was disbanded in 1942, he returned to the his home town in Detroit where he got married. He later returned to China as a mechanic with China National Aviation Corporation (CNAC) flying the "Hump" before returning to the US again. After his service, he joined TransAsiatic Airlines in Burma and became a pilot.
