    A heritage park honoring the U.S. "Flying Tigers" air squadron, who helped the Chinese fight the Japanese aggression in World War II, is set to open in south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.

    The Flying Tiger Heritage Park is built on the site of the Yangtang airport in Lingui county, which hosted American planes during WWII, about 15 km from Guilin city. The project is part of celebrations commemorating the 70th anniversary of the victory of the World Anti-Fascist War, according to the city government of Guilin.

    The park will include a museum, aircraft shelters and relics of a command post located in a cave, which is the only of its kind.

    The Flying Tigers, officially known as the American Volunteer Group of the Chinese Air Force, were formed in 1941 led by U.S. General Claire Lee Chennaults to help China drive out invading Japanese troops.

    The U.S-based Flying Tiger Historical Organization, which includes the squadron's pilots, their families and supporters, said it has donated more than 600 historical items to the park.
