Flying Tigers was the popular name of the 1st American Volunteer Group (AVG) of the Chinese Air Force in 1941–1942. The pilots were United States Army (USAAF), Navy (USN), and Marine Corps (USMC) personnel, recruited under Presidential sanction and commanded by Claire Lee Chennault; the ground crew and headquarters staff were likewise mostly recruited from the U.S. military, along with some civilians.

Flying Tigers in "News From the Front"Edit

The Washington Post ran a story on the Flying Tigers' efforts in China and how that they had reported the superior fighting ability of the Japanese Zero to Washington, and how the US Navy had been taken by surprise anyway.[1]
