AVG: American Volunteer Group (Chennault's original Flying Tigers)

The following titles are included in USAF Archive microfilm 25866, indexed as "Airfields in China". Most include a small information block stating:

American Volunteer Group
Confidential Secretariat


The maps are without coordinates and have no scale; most are undated, but the mention above of the AVG requires a date before the organization disbanded on 04 July 1942 (the sheet that includes Loiwing does have a handwritten "Jan. 10, 1942" over the information block). Curiously all the maps use metric dimensions and all include Chinese characters which would indicate that they were of Nationalist Chinese origin. The individual documents vary widely in quality. Only two of the best are available here for download:
