Flying the P-40B from late 1941 the Flying Tigers, known officially as the 1st American Volunteer Group, were a unit of the Republic of China Air Force, recruited from U.S. aviators. They were divided into three fighter intercept squadrons, the "Hells Angels", "Adam & Eves" and "Panda". The AVG was highly successful, and its feats were widely-published, for propaganda purposes. According to their own count, in just nine months, the Flying Tigers shot down 286 aircraft for the loss of just four of their own.
This aircraft is part of the Fighter Collection based at IWM Duxford and is displayed at the Flying Legends show.
