Answer . The Japanese invaded parts of China before they attacked the US at Pearl Harbor. The Chinese tried to fight to hold back the advance of the Japanese. The Chinese did not have sufficient air force to send up against the Japanese. The US could not send troops or military equipment as they …were not at war.. A group of volunteers were gathered from the US and sent over to fly American-made P-40 Tomahawks in support of the Chinese. Their aircraft were painted with a shark's teeth on the nose and the national insignia was the 12-pointed white star on a blue circle--not US marking. Their squadron marking was a V with a flying-tiger jumping through it.. Typically, the American was an experienced pilot in the Army or Navy and the government allowed him to be discharged. He signed a contract with someone representing the Chinese government to fly and fight for them. They were sent over on a commericial ship and registered as a "missionary" or "businessman". (I've seen a contract and ship roster from a collection of one of these airmen.). This group of volunteers were called the American Volunteer Group. The fought for the Chinese until Japan attack US and war was declared. Most of these volunteers re-joined the US military at that time and they adopted the same shark teeth for their aircraft markings.. ____________________________________________________________. The Flying Tigers (or AVG) were created by US General Chennault to fight a war in which the US was not able to participate officially. 100 Curtiss P-40s were ordered by Great Britain, but they were not delivered because the British lacked pilots to fly them. Chennault acquired them and recruited US pilots who joined for adventure, money, or idealism. Not all of these pilots were fighter pilots, and several of the P-40's were crashed before the Flying Tigers entered combat. Documents declassified in 1991 reveal that Chennault urged the formation of a second fighter group, and a bomber group (equipped with a bomber version of the Lockheed Electra to bomb Japan from Chinese bases), but Pearl Harbor ended these plans. After the US went on the offensive, the Flying Tigers were betrayed by the US. The shark face appeared on other P-40s in the CBI (China-Burma-India) theater, but with USAAC insignia instead of the Nationalist Chinese star insignia. General Stilwell was part of this conspiracy, and thereafter any USAAC fighter pilot in the CBI had the right to call himself a Flying Tiger. Robert L. Scott (author of God is my Co-pilot) was one of these Flying Tiger latecomers, and he was an ace, but he was not part of the original AVG.. As to the shark face on the P-40, Chennault saw a photo in Life Magazine of a British P-40 in North Africa painted in such a way, and he ordered the AVG planes to be painted in the same way to terrify the Japanese. . The three squadrons of the Flying Tigers racked up an incredible number of kills, and provided the Allies with their only victory in late '41 and early '42. [Everywhere else, the Allies were clearly losing the war.] . Original AVG pilot Gregory Boyington apparently took a tip from General Chennault and formed his own US Marine fighter squadron called the Black Sheep which racked up an incredible number of kills in the South Pacific in 1943, and he finished the war with 28 kills (six with the Flying Tigers and twenty-two with the Black Sheep). . If not for The US entry in World War 2, the Flying Tigers would certainly have achieved more than they did. Even still, their achievements are amazing, and they can be compared with those of RAF Fighter Command in the Battle of Britain in 1940. Yet, the Flying Tigers had fewer airplanes of lesser quality, primitive communications, no radar, and a much larger airspace to defend. ( Full Answer )

The American Volunteer Group, aka the AVG or the Flying Tigers. Chennault formed a group of US pilots to assist China while the US remained neutral. The planes were a hundred Curtiss P4O built for Great Britain but delivery was cancelled because the British had not enough pilots to fly them. Officia…lly the AVG was part of the Chinese Air Force, and their planes were painted with Chinese Nationalist markings. Chennault also ordered a shark face pained on the nose of each plane to unnerve the Japanese. Chennault's tactics were unconventional but effective. The three squadrons of the AVG operated from numerous primitive airfields in China. Although badly outnumbered they accounted for a huge number of Japanese aircraft shot down, and in the late 1941 and early 1942 they gave the Allies their only victory anywhere in the world.

The original Flying Tigers were a group of Americans who volunteered and signed a contract with the Chinese Government to fly (and others worked as mechanics, etc) and fight the Japanese who were invading their country. This was before the US declared war, so these Americans were not in the US Army.… After the US entered the war, some of these American volunteers joined the American Army. They formed an official unit within the US Army that was known as the Flying Tigers and also painted the shark's mouth on their fighters. Also the 14th Air Force adopted the flying tiger as their unit insignia. ( Full Answer )

Generally a patch lead is shorter i.e. used in the patch panel. THe fly lead was generally used to connect an ethernet station to a network point, these are generally longer. These were common terms which were used when ethernet began to get popular. Unfortunately not many 'professionals' know the d…ifference as they were brought up in the 'new age' of networking not using the terms. The reason for the two 'different' cables is pure tidyness. Quite often you see patch panels with LONG trailing fly leads patching various ports. This is quite messy if you had a large network. Using patch leads, you could make them up to an exact length, following the cable ducts to make it cleaner to look at and ultimately easier to troubleshoot. Despite having different names, they are both wired exactly the same: Orange/White Orange Green/White Blue Blue/White Green Brown/White Brown ( Full Answer )

In the credits for this film, the character is described as Captain Jim Gordon. A quick glance at publicity photos fails to see any insignia on his shoulders, but the unit was a pretty ad-hoc one.
The group first saw combat on 20 December 1941, 12 days after Pearl Harbor (local time). During the course of the war they were credited with destroying nearly 300 enemy aircraft while losing only 14 pilots on combat missions (though Japanese records examined after the war claimed only 115 of their …aircraft had been downed). In July 1942, the American Volunteer Group (the official name of the Flying Tigers), was replaced by the U.S. Army 23rd Fighter Group, which was later absorbed into the U.S. 14th Air Force with General Chennault as commander. The 23rd FG went on to achieve similar combat success, while retaining the famous sharks-face nose art and fighting name of the volunteer unit. ( Full Answer )

If you are teaching a green horse to do flying lead changes it'll be easier if you use the entire arena. First get the horse into a good collected canter. Then ride across the diagonal of the arena, keep your inside leg pressed gently into the girth and your outside leg pressed gently behind the gir…th. As you cross the center-line change the position of your legs, the inside should now be behind the girth and the outside leg on the girth.As you do this gently bend your horse through his whole body while keeping the canter at a collected and steady pace. Your hands should be gentle and allow the horse to use his back through the whole exercise. Continue to the corner of the arena even if the horse did not change leads. halt and try again.
