The last Flying Tiger

Col. Walt Jackim, 45th Space Wing vice commander, receives a coin from Frank Losonsky, the sole remaining member of the American Volunteer Group Flying Tigers during a visit to Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla. on Sept. 21, 2017. Losonsky and 50 descendants of the original members, toured the Cape and learned how the Flying Tigers and the 45th Space Wing share a distinct lineage as subordinate units of the 14th Air Force. From P-40 Warhawk aircraft to launching rockets into space, 14th Air Force units have been breaking barriers for many decades. (US Air Force photo by Matthew Jurgens)
