My father was a Hump pilot, 3rd Combat Cargo Group flying out of Impal and Ledo, India, and eventually Myitkyina, Burma, after it was recaptured. He flew C-47s for drop supply missions supporting the British 36th Division in the jungle, and when his unit started flying the Hump, they switched out to 46s. He spoke highly of the plane, which he flew 60 round trips to China. If I'm not mistaken, it has hydraulic assisted controls which required a lot less effort than the 47. Here's a good book on the mission: Hump: America's Strategy for Keeping China in World War II (Williams-Ford Texas A&M University Military History Series) Plating, John D.
Fun fact: the path from India to China over the Hump was known as "The Aluminum Trail".

Hey my dad would have been a passenger going over the Hump--he talks about it sometimes..Assigned to the India/Burma/China group 1943-1945
He was with Gen Joe (Vinegar Joe) Stillwell.

Jeff Ethell put together a great book on flying the Hump. Look it up. Jeff died in a P-38 in 1999. Ironically it was painted like his father's P-38, who achieved ace status while flying in N. Africa.
The C-46 had 2800's and could carry a great load.

My flying instructor, the late Dick Cooke, flew this type of bird in North Africa. He gave me his 60 years of aviation memorabilia, including old instruments, manuals for several military planes including the Curtiss Commando. I donated about 90% of what he gave to me, (12 packing boxes worth) to the Commemorative Air Force in Midland, TX. I still have some material I am using to include in his book. His book is in the final stages of editing. Potential title is "From Barnstorming to Bombers. It is actually his life history in aviation from the 1930's into the 1990's and up to his passing just a few years ago I believe I still have his approach plates to Berlin. My current dilemma is e-book or paper? I am leaning towards an e-book even though the old vets who would appreciate his story are probably not computer literate enough to obtain a copy. But, I think the younger generation of pilots would be thrilled to read about his adventures and misadventures. The CAF has ALL of his log books from beginning to end. The book is very close to being finished. I just need some photo permissions from various sources.
