Ken Jernstedt, one of 39 Flying Tiger aces of World War II with 10½ confirmed victories, has just defeated a Japanese Nakajima Ki-27

Col. Robert Scott, the first commander of the 23rd Fighter Group - successor to Claire Chennault's Flying Tigers - attacks a formation of Japanese bombers during his last combat mission, December 26, 1942.

 The American Volunteer Group (AVG), or "Flying Tigers" as they came to be known, flew against the Japanese before the U.S. was officially involved in WWII. After their disbandment on July 4, 1942, the pilots of the AVG were allowed to continue flying if they joined the U.S. Army Air Force's 23rd Fighter Group. One such pilot, David Lee "Tex" Hill, is shown here standing in front of his Mustang with some of his ground crew at the airfield in Kweilin, China, after returning from a mission.
