    Here is a You Tube film of the Flying Tigers --- this is the outfit my father-in-law was in during the War. He was in one of the first convoys that drove the Ledo and Burma Road. As he became older he talked more and more about his experiences ... which were quite interesting. We went to the units reunion, possibly the last one, this year and met men who were in the Flying Tigers. Very interesting tales they told.

    Thanks for the link, I'll have to watch it later when I have time.

    I remember reading God Is My Co-Pilot in High School, that was a great book written by Robert L. Scott about his experiences flying with the Flying Tigers in WWII.
