If I agreed with you, then we'd both be wrong
Has anyone else seen this group, before? Seems to be reasonably accurate to me.

I've seen this site before.  They're a reenactment group.  They seem pretty accurate to me also.

Thanks, Mayor.  They showed up on our radar in the 2009-10 timeframe.

I met the guy that owns the restored jeep some time back at a war birds show, lots of guys out there. Pretty cool that they're out in the public at air shows, parades, etc. bringing the history to the otherwise uninformed public.

Would like to mention that the Blood Chit they offer is inaccurate along with the one offered here in the for sale section. The two characters in parentheses represent "American" and the original AVG Blood Chits did not have them. The characters were a later addition after The U.S. entered the war.

Here is a proper AVG Blood Chit, this one was owned by Jasper Harrington. Notice the lack of two characters in parentheses, this one simply says "Foreign Person" as opposed to "Foreign Person (American)"I may have to brush up a bit, but as far as I ever remember, this has been a significant detail that should not be overlooked. If I remember correctly, the Flying Tigers were not to be identified as U.S. Servicemen and were essentially hired mercenaries. Please correct me if I'm wrong. but for their iconic Blood Chit to be tossed in there with the rest of them is a surprise to me wherever I see it and I'm always compelled to educate. For anyone wanting to differentiate the AVG from the 14th Air Force, this is a good start.
