ARTIFACT: 7x9” black and white Associated Press photo of three P-40s in formation (53, 13, 59). Original credits present but detached. Grainy image (most likely from being enlarged). 1st Pursuit Squadron emblem identifiable on p-40 #13.

Artifacts that belonged to members of the original Flying Tigers are extremely hard to acquire and rarely come up for sale. Often collectors lucky enough to acquire anything from the AVG will hold onto the pieces for their entire lifetime and families rarely let these artifacts go if they are lucky enough to still possess them. Don’t miss this chance to own a true piece of WWII Aviation History.
