I have a couple of other goodies for you concerning George Ohrenberger, the young CNAC co-pilot who died on board the Chekiang in August 1937. Please find attached his Royal Aero Club index card and photograph. He was born in Harbin, China in 1915, and in fact describes himself as Chinese, but learned to fly at Hamble, Hantsfordshire, UK when he was 20.


If you can share any information about George Ohrnberger
