Remembering Harry Chin - Worked at NWA MOD Center in the 1940s

Harry G. Chin of Waseca - Waseca MN: Obituaries

     Lady Skywriter had the pleasure of meeting Harry Chin at the NWA History Centre in 2011.  His daughter Sheila Morris and her husband Rick brought Harry from his home in Waseca, Minn. to visit the museum and meet John Peterson, who was the first Crew Chief at the MOD Center at Holman Field, St. Paul.
     At the MOD Center (Bomber Modification Center) Northwest Airlines installed Radome and Nordic bombsights on B-24s.  Harry also installed gas tanks on B-25s for the British.
