ARTIFACT: RARE 8x10 period hand-colored black and white photograph of three 3rd Squadron Aces around the cockpit of a P-40 (one seated in). Details slightly fuzzy (from being enlarged), but pilots are wearing flight jackets. 3rd Sq. emblem partially visible on fuselage, and 5 kill flags are plainly visible at center. Pilots in photo are Chuck Older, Ken Jernstedt, & Tom Haywood.

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.

VINTAGE: Circa WWII, or not long after.

SIZE: Approximately 8" in height x 10" in width.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Black and white, hand-colored photograph.

ATTACHMENT: N/A.

MARKINGS: Reverse reads: Left to Right
