As some of the most celebrated pilots in the history of aerial warfare, the Flying Tigers of the 1st American Volunteer Group achieved incredible success and against overwhelming odds in their robust but ageing Curtiss fighters, at a time when Japanese forces were advancing across vast areas of the Pacific. A volunteer force of just 100 pilots equipped with aircraft originally destined for the RAF Desert Air Force, the Flying Tigers are often misconceived as an ill-disciplined group of journeymen flyers who were simply in it for the money. In fact, they were highly trained fighter pilots who had volunteered to fight in some of the most inhospitable conditions endured by any pilots during WWII. And as they entered combat in the days following the infamous Pearl Harbor attack, they were determined to destroy as many Japanese aircraft as possible. In this aim, they were spectacularly successful, posting some of the most impressive combat kill ratios of the war.

The Curtiss P-40 was a single-engine fighter and ground attack aircraft that first flew in 1938. It was used by the air forces of 28 nations, including most of the Allied powers during WWII. By November 1944, when production ceased, 13,738 P-40s had been built.
