FLYING TIGERS - THE STUFF OF LEGEND
P-40's of the AVG Flying Tigers 3rd Pursuit Squadron - Hell’s Angels - surprise the enemy with a deadly strafing attack on a Japanese forward air-base in China, summer 1942. With their Allison engines screaming at full throttle, AVG Aces Tommy Haywood and Robert Smith, lead the charge as the Hell’s Angels leave a trail of havoc and destruction behind them.
Robert Taylor has created a masterpiece to honor all of the ‘Flying Tigers’ and his outstanding painting portrays a typical scene in this distant war fought by that small band of warriors.
The release is autographed by legendary Aces including four of the AVG’s most respected pilots who, since signing, have sadly passed away; giving even greater meaning to this edition. We are delighted that this historic commemorative edition is now released in tribute to this immortal unit, providing aviation art connoisseurs with a true collectors piece.

- Flight Leader Dick Rossi
- Flight Leader Erik Shilling
- Colonel David 'Tex' Hill
- Colonel Charles Older
