Here's the link to the memorabilia page: http://www.flyingtigersavg.com/tiger7.htm  At the bottom of the page is a link for the order form you'll need to print out : http://www.flyingtigersavg.com/oldorderform.html  The address to send to is on the order form. A money order will get your purchase on the way more quickly.....However, the print you mentioned is no longer listed on the memorabilia page. You might inquire if the FTA can get additional copies for sale. In the past, they were able to get me a print that they no longer listed. It was "Tigers Over China-1942" by Roy Grinnell.  It featured 1st Squadron pilots Dick Rossi, Jim Cross, and John Dean..No guarantees, but it's worth a try. Perhaps someone 'in the know' will address your interest in the print and advise you as to it's availability.

Good tips, Bill.  I've checked many of the websites which handle John Shaw's art and this item "Tigers in the Gorge" is sold out at many of the sources, even John
Shaw's own website.  Let's see what Lydia can do for you from her inventory.

BTW, this is an exciting moment in history.  To hear Tex tell the story of this vital mission, following dinner at the 2006 Reunion banquet, was incredible and truly memorable as he kept all around his table spellbound.

An exciting point in history is an understatement. It wasn't till I heard Johnny Allison's presentation in Seattle in 2001, that I understood the true importance of the Salween Gorge action. It saved China, and kept them in the war. If the Japanese had crossed the Salween, China may have been 'conquered' and hundreds of thousands of Japanese troops would have been freed to move against allied troops in other theaters. The number of potential Allied casualties can only be guessed at, but they would have been significant.

Isn't it amazing how one action can turn the tide of an entire war.  God only knows how many Chinese soldiers and civilians were saved from anihilation by that mission.  The AVG just a small part in history?  I think not.
