Before the pilots of the Flying Tigers could take to the skies against the enemy, the P-40's .30 caliber wing guns had to be bore sighted. The ingenious armorers of the AVG were often forced to improvise, but as the Tigers' incredible combat record can attest, these great Americans got the job done!
Artist John D. Shaw has recreated this scenario, featuring likenesses of actual AVG personnel, such as "Tex" Hill and armorer Chuck Baisden. Today, less than two dozen of these great American heroes are still with us (only six of whom were pilots) and it's been a true honor for John to work with them on another painting to help their legacy survive!
