FLYING TIGERS
- THE STUFF OF LEGEND -

by Robert Taylor

Robert-Taylor-Flying-Tigers, P-40, China 1942



THE WORLD’S PREMIER AVIATION ARTIST ROBERT TAYLOR PAYS TRIBUTE TO THE LEGENDARY FLYING TIGERS

P-40s 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 the ‘Flying Tigers’ and 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. Robert Taylor is proud to now release this historic commemorative edition in tribute to this immortal unit, providing aviation art connoisseurs with a remarkable collectors piece.
