Click here to read about Pete's 2001 trip back to India. I think he had a great time.

Hi Tom,

I am gald you made contact with Peter deKantzow. He is a fine young lad and I know he is happy to be contacted by CNAC.

I started flying as capt. for CNAC in April '43 and quit them in June of '47. I made 680 trips across the "Hump" which was par for the course. I should have had more, but was delayed in the States for a couple extra months to pick up my plane to ferry back to Calcutta. I was away for four and half months in the States.

All the best, Pete
