Very few US military aviation groups enjoy the level of notoriety afforded the distinguished 1st American Volunteer Group (AVG) of the Chinese Air Force, aka the "Flying Tigers." In The Old Exterminator, world-renowned aviation artist Sam Lyons honors the brave members of the legendary WWII fighter group, as well as their well-known aircraft, the P-40 Warhawk. The 15" x 23" illustration prominently features one of the Tigers' trademark Warhawks - characteristic shark nose art and all - parked in a barren, mountainous region of China. The level of accuracy on the airplane is simply astounding, as is Lyons' devotion to detail in the austere environment. Spend a few minutes absorbing the image and you're sure to hold the Flying Tigers in even higher regard.

This picture is available as both an Artist Proof (limited to 30) and a signed & numbered Limited Edition print (limited to 300). Both versions are printed on acid-free paper, utilize first-rate permanent inks, and include a Certificate of Authenticity. Further adding to the image's prominence is the signature of the late Brigadier General Robert L. Scott, who served with the Tigers. Also offered are Prints on Canvas (limited to 20). An immaculate homage to a heroic group of American aviators and the immortal airplane that helped make them famous.
