Lope’s Hope the 3rd, currently under restoration by AirCorps Aviation in Bemidji, MN, is getting closer and closer to restoration. While some parts are still being worked on, recent work on the recovery of original parts was made. Included is an image of the 1944 radio call frequencies card in which the codes are clearly visible. Captain Lopez operated out of Kweilin in early September, Chihkiang in late September and all of October, and finally in November, Chihkiang, Luliang, and Kunming.
