Flight Leader Peter Wright (deceased)

Peter Wright was born in 1917 in Portland, Oregon and grew up in the Philidelphia, Pennsylvania area. After attending Yale for 2 years, he joined the Navy and earned his wings by 1940. He served as a dive-bomber pilot aboard the USS Yorktown, Ranger and Wasp. When he joined the AVG in 1941, Peter was assigned to the Panda Bears squadron, and participated in what would prove to be some of the AVG s more significant battles, including the dive-bombing mission in the Salween River Gorge. After the AVGs disbandment, Peter volunteered to remain in China for 2 extra weeks, helping check out new incoming American pilots. During this time, he added an additional enemy aircraft to his score, giving him a total of 3.65 victories. After the war, Peter became highly involved with the helicopter industry, acquiring a number of prestigious awards, and ultimately being instrumental in establishing the American Helicopter Museum in Westchester, Pennsylvania, the nations first of its kind. Peter has remained extremely active with his AVG companions throughout the years, and always recalled those days with great fondness. Peter Wright sadly died 1st June 2007.
