JACK FOLTY (19??-1999)
(CNAC 194? - 194?)

May 19, 2001
From Oliver Glenn

"Jack Folty became a very good friend of mine when his wife, my wife and another pilot's wife came out to Shanghai together on the delivery flight of one of our six DC-4's. Since our wives became friends, Jack and I saw each other frequently. Several years later when we ran into each other in Los Angeles, we re-established our friendships. Jack was a Douglas Technical Representative on the A-20 bombers in the 7th Air Force in New Guinea. Besides being an excellent hammer and wrench mechanic, he was a good supervisor and got along wonderfully with our Chinese mechanics. All the work on our planes was done by the Chinese mechanics (and it was darned good), but the top supervision was done by about a dozen top grade extremely experienced American mechanics. In Los Angeles, in the 70's, 80's and 90's Jack and I got together over a Scotch on the rocks occasionally. He passed away in 1999 at about 86 or 87.

Unfortunately we have no more information on Jack Folty other than what you see on this page.
