Mr Tung Sheng-Liu (deceased) - Art prints and originals signed by Mr Tung Sheng-Liu (deceased)

Mr Tung Sheng-Liu (deceased)

Tung-Sheng Liu, was born on the 3rd of December 1917, in Wei-Tying, Kiangsi, China. Born to a merchant family in China, Mr. Liu helped rescue members of a U.S. B-25 crew, one of the B-25 bombers taking part in the Doolittle Raids on Toyko which had crash-landed near the Chinese coast in April 1942. Acting as interpreter and guide, Mr. Liu helped lead the Americans through Japanese-occupied areas to a dusty landing strip where they flew to safety. During our whole trip under Liu's guidance, our treatment was superb, navigator Lt. Carl Wildner was quoted as saying in Doolittle's Tokyo Raiders, a book written by Lt. Col. Carroll V. Glines about the attack. He had risked his neck for us.After WWII ended, Mr. Liu travelled to the United States to study aeronautical engineering at the University of Minnesota. Through a lucky coincidence, he met up again with the Doolittle Tokyo Raiders, led by the legendary Gen. James H. Jimmy Doolittle. Mr. Liu was extremely proud to be named an honorary member of the Raiders; he maintained lifelong friendships with the airmen he had helped in China and eagerly took part in most of the Raiders' yearly reunions. Mr. Liu became a U.S. citizen in 1954. Four years later he began work as a civilian aeronautical engineer at Wright Patterson AFB in Dayton, Ohio, where he helped develop the C5 military transport aircraft. After retiring, he moved to California in 1981. He was active in Chinese-American community groups such as the Dayton Association of Chinese-Americans, the Tsinghua University Alumni in South California, and the Chinese Committee on Aging in Los Angeles. Sadly he died of pneumonia in Monterey Park on May 3, 2009. He was 92.
