A mixed flight of shark-nosed Curtiss Tomahawk and P-40E Kittyhawk fighters of the legendary American Volunteer Group return from a patrol near their base at Kweilin, China, during mid-1942.

Under the brilliant leadership of Claire Chennault, the AVG achieved a remarkable combat record since its debut in Late 1941. It was disbanded in July, 1942 and suceeded by the 23rd Fighter Group of the United States Army Air Corps, which served with distinction to the end of the war.
