Flying Tiger pilot Ed Overend of the AVG’s Third Squadron – Hell's Angels – successfully attacks a Japanese Ki-43 ‘Oscar’ fighter over the China – Burma border in early Spring, 1942.
Formed in the months before Pearl Harbor by veteran U.S. aviator Claire Chennault, then a recently-appointed brigadier-general in the Chinese Air Force, an intrepid band of buccaneering American pilots and ground crew volunteered to fight against the Japanese in China. Officially named the 1st American Volunteer Group (AVG), they would soon become known more simply as the Flying Tigers.

 

It has been 80 years since Chennault formed the Flying Tigers and both to commemorate that anniversary and remember the defiant spirit of his small but intrepid band of flyers, Anthony has completed this powerful piece worthy of the occasion.
