We hosted a symposium again at Fantasy of Flight for Black History month honoring the Tuskegee Airmen. They were the black pilots that flew for America during WWI and got their name from the field they trained at in Tuskegee, Alabama.
Again, I got a chance to fly my P-51C Mustang for them as the attendees looked on. They talked about their adventures and exploits as well as the hardships they went through due to the racial prejudice and segregation at the time. I was honored when they inducted me into their organization as an honorary Tuskegee Airman because of be being the first person to paint an airplane in their colors to help promote their cause. Their signature markings were the red nose and tail.
Several news stations came out to cover the event and I got a chance to sport the red jacket they gave me!
