Flying Tigers by Robert Taylor
THE WORLDS PREMIER AVIATION ARTIST ROBERT TAYLOR PAYS TRIBUTE TO THE LEGENDARY FLYING TIGERS
P-40s of the AVG Flying Tigers 3rd Pursuit Squadron - Hells 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 Hells 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 AVGs 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.
