“飞虎队”(Flying Tigers)全称为:“中国空军美国志愿援华航空队”。成立于1941年8月1日,创始人是美国飞行教官陈纳德。抗日战争结束时,飞虎队以损失飞机800余架,牺牲3000多人的代价,共击落敌机2600架、击沉或重创223万吨敌商船、44艘军舰、13000艘100吨以下的内河船只,击毙日军官兵66700名,为中国人民的抗日战争和世界反法西斯战争的胜利做出了巨大的贡献。

The "Flying Tigers" is derived from "China Air Force America Volunteers Group." which was founded on August 1, 1941 by the American flight instructor Chennault. At the end of the  World War II, the Flying Tigers lost more than 800 aircraft and sacrificed more than 3,000 people. They shot down 2,600 enemy planes, sunk or reinvented 2.23 million tons of enemy merchant ships, 44 warships, and 13,000 inland rivers under 100 tons. The Flying Tigers killed 66,700 Japanese officers and soldiers and made tremendous contributions to the Chinese people's war of resistance against Japan and the victory of the world anti-fascist war.
