Do CCP records log air attacks by Jiang's air arms during the existence of the Jiangxi and other Soviets? There are brief references that the Americans at the Central Aviation School based at Hangzhou refused in the fall of 1933 to fly in support of Jiang's campaign. Also, there are hints that General Roberto Lordi did fly reconnaissance or bombing missions then or in early 1934. Nothing in English, (and I have looked at some Italian) is definitive. Also a Chinese piloted plane may have defected to the CCP and was buried when the "Long March" was undertaken. Finally, the very capable Guangdong Provincial Air Force would have engaged if ordered to by the Guandong warlord. Just thought to enquire from the point of view of the defenders not attackers. Many thanks in advance.
