The exploits of the A.V.G. (American Volunteer Group), also known as the Flying Tigers, are now legendary.  Their high kill-to-loss ratios and colorful story is well known. During the brief time that the Flying Tigers defended China and Burma against the incursions of the Japanese, they racked up a high kill-to-loss ratio and the gratitude of a nation. Here we see a pair of Tigers downing a Japanese fighter over the winding Burma Road.
