Robert Taylor has created a masterpiece to honor all of the ‘Flying Tigers’ and his outstanding new painting portrays a typical scene in this distant war fought by that small band of warriors. With their Allison engines screaming at full throttle, P-40s of the AVG’s 3rd Pursuit Squadron - ‘Hell’s Angels’ - surprise the enemy with a deadly strafing attack on a forward Japanese air-base. In the foreground R.T. Smith leads the charge as the ‘Hell’s Angels’ leave a trail of havoc and destruction behind them.
The release is autographed by legendary ‘Flying Tigers’ including four of the AVG’s most respected pilots who, since signing the prints, have sadly passed away, giving even greater meaning to this edition.
