  Relatives travel to the United States to visit the graves of 52 young pilots who died overseas during World War II. Li Lei reports.

  On May 13, the United States flag flew at half-mast at Fort Bliss National Cemetery in West Texas as the facility played host to 12 visitors from China and five from the US.

  The solemn-looking visitors laid bouquets in front of 52 marble headstones engraved with the words "CHINESE AIR FORCE" that formed a rectangle near the perimeter fence.
