Details

The Decisive Moment"

On May 7, 1942 the Japanese 15th army arrived at the Salween Gorge, the gateway into southern China. Before they could begin crossing on their pontoon bridge they were assaulted by aircraft from the American Volunteer Group (AVG) better known as the "Flying Tigers." Utilizing the bomb carrying capabilities of their P-40E Kittyhawks alongside their P-40B Tomahawks they single handedly turned back the Japanese invasion of Southern China, harassing the retreating columns back into Burma. The Battle of the Salween Gorge ranks as one of the most decisive uses of air power in the history of aerial warfare.

This print was created to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the American Volunteer Group. These prints were signed at the AVG's final reunion held here at the Museum over Memorial Day weekend in 2001. Each print is signed by 23 members of the AVG including Tex Hill, Chuck Older, Dick Rossi, Ken Jernstedt and Eric Shilling. Own this once in a lifetime print of the famous "Flying Tigers
