     The P-40 Warhawk was my all time favorite plane as a kid.  I liked it better than any modern fighter jet or stealthy flying contraption around.  This one was the cats meow.  Back then, I only knew it as a Flying Tiger so I just had to depict a tiger in this painting.  But I didn't want it to look like a random tiger was just walking across the tarmac.  The tiger is meant to allude to the mystery and strength of the squadron of men who flew these planes. I wanted the tiger to feel like a fleeting memory of what was once so.
