Post subject: Tuskegee Airmen

Could be worth watching


During the month of February the film Red Tail Reborn will be shown coast to coast on many local PBS stations. Check these listings for your local station. www.redtail.org/?p=71

Amidst the racial naysayers during WWII, the first African-American fighter pilots were commissioned in 1941 to help defend the distressed bombers in the European theater. Under the watch of these pilots, few to no bombers were lost to enemy fighters. These forgotten pilots are known as the Tuskegee Airmen.

The ambition to make these heroes a household name is the primary objective of The Red Tail Project, a group of men and women who honored the Airmen by touring airshows with a restored P-51C Mustang, the famous roaring fighter plane these men flew in combat. The Red Tail Project is a part of the CAF, or Commemorative Air Force; a nationwide organization dedicated to honoring american military avation through flight, exhibition and remembrance. Like the men they tribute, the Red Tail Project encountered adversity when their flying homage to the Airmen, the Mustang, crashed in 2004, killing pilot Don Hinz, who was also the project leader.

Red Tail Reborn, narrated by Michael Dorn, is a tale of inspiration. Historic interviews, unprecedented access, and emotional honesty bring to light the tale of the Airmen, and of those who honor them. The Tuskegee Airmen showed the world what hope, determination and hard work could do. Find out how these lessons are applied to a project recovering from a lost aircraft and lost friend.

Red Tail Reborn is the direct film website, and Red Tail is the project site.

Cheers.
I'd heard of the Tuskagee Airmen but didn't know what they were (I thought it was where they were from, lol).

Not too long ago, I was walking out of a hospital after visiting a friend that was there, and almost ran into an old man that was wearing a hat that said Tuskegee airman on it. It turns out that he was one of the famed pilots that flew with them. I've since seen him being interviewed on a local talk show.
