An original Tuskegee Airman, Col. Herbert E. Carter, was honored by having the newly built 3,000 square foot terminal building at Tuskegee’s Moton Field named for him.

Carter was a member of the original thirty-three members of the Tuskegee Airmen and flew seventy-seven missions during World War II.

And for this airfield and this community this is expected to be a game changer.

“Moton Field has a lot of history,” said Mayor Tony Haygood at the 52nd annual Memorial Day Fly-In at Tuskegee’s Moton Field. “It’s a major step for us. We are now ready to go to another level in the city of Tuskegee, so it shows we are continuing to make progress.”

The cost of the terminal was funded by the FAA, Alabama Department of Transportation, and city of Tuskegee.
