    Hawks supplied to the Flying Tigers.  There 3 squadrons, about 33 planes each.  The nude is from the "Hell's Angels" Squadron.  Most of what got to the Flying Tigers in 1941/42 were B & C models and some Hawk 81's Shanghaied from the Lend Lease program.  I suspect the one at Evergreen is actually an E or later model since it doesn't have the nose guns.
