The Airlift Tanker Association, Tarheel Chapter, is hosting Thornton Rose as a guest speaker at the Pope Club July 23 from 11-1 p.m. Mr. Rose flew in the Hump mission during World War II.

"The Hump" was a high altitude military aerial supply route over the Assam Valley in northeastern India, across northern Burma, to Yunnan province in southwestern China. This operation was the first sustained, long range, 24 hour around the clock, all weather, military aerial supply line in history.
