Did you know that the shark mouth on the nose of the Flying Tigers was originally designed to deter the Japanese army?


In order to shock the Japanese pilots psychologically, a shark with an open mouth and two rows of sharp teeth was painted on both sides of the nose of the Flying Tigers’ aircraft. In 1941, a large number of young American pilots, led by General Chennault, formed the “American Volunteer Air Corps of the Chinese Air Force” (Flying Tigers). They came to China and fought side by side with the Chinese people to fight against Japanese fascist aggression.
