Shown in this beautiful rendering is a mixed bag of shark-mouthed P-40 ‘Tomahawk’ and P-40E ‘Kittyhawk’ fighters of the AVG returning from patrol near their base at Kweilin, China during mid-1942. Under the brilliant leadership of Claire Lee Chennault, the AVG achieved a remarkable combat record since its debut in late 1941, and was disbanded July 4, 1942.
