This is a copyrighted photograph of Robert T. Smith taken with his camera, not a work of an U.S. Air Force Airman or employee. The link to the source (http://www.ww2incolor.com/gallery/U-S-Air-Force/flying_tigers_pilot) no longer works.

The photograph was probably taken on May 23, 1942 at Kunming, China in front of Tomahawk #40, not "next to his P-40 fighter". #40 was probably assigned to Tom Cole of the 2nd Squadron. R.T. smith was assigned #77 and #47.

I'm happy to grant Wikipedia the right to use the image, but would like to see the file name, caption, source and permission changed.
