Ground is broken for the building of the museum at Guilin's Flying Tiger Heritage Park.
Construction began on July 15, 2011 and is expected to be completed sometime in 2012. A flag raising ceremony is planned for March 2012. The Flying Tiger Historical Organization will present the museum with four American Flags, all flown over our Capitol on December 7th, 2010. FTHO will also present a replica flag of the famous Flying Tiger "V" Flag.
