"Old Exterminator" - Framed Art Print by Craig Tinder
By Artist Craig Tinder
A West Point graduate, Col. Robert Scott would command the 23rd Fighter Group of the 14th Air Force which was formed by General Claire Chennault. The 23rd Fighter Group was formed as a follow-on to Chennault's earlier American Volunteer Group (AVG - or Flying Tigers) to become an actively established and sanctioned military presence in China. In his famous autobiography "God is My Co-Pilot", Col. Scott recounted his personal nomination by Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek as the appointed commander of the 23rd.
Col. Scott flew nearly 400 combat missions, including many in "Old Exterminator" and received 13 confirmed victories, becoming one of the first U.S. combat aces of the war. He would finish the war developing new tactics for aerial rockets barrages and led numerous missions against Japanese shipping and rail targets.
