Refrigerator magnet pictures an illustration from a vintage 1943 advertisement by Pan American airlines for its China Clipper service.  Accompanying text described the leapfrog decade-long progression in China from reliance upon the Yangtze Kiang and Grand Canal rivers to air travel via Pan American's trans-Pacific Clipper service, especially important after world war II military conflict closed the Burma road.  A side bar cited the joint effort in 1942 between the US and British air forces with Pan American-trained China National Aviation pilots.  Flying mostly at night and in adverse conditions, the three entities evacuated nearly 9,000 people from Burma.
