This just in! We are excited to announce the launch of our new Virtual Museum, creating yet another exciting way for people to learn about and appreciate the Tuskegee Airmen. Nowhere else can people of all ages, from all around the world, come to one site and learn so much about the history and experience of the Tuskegee Airmen.

“Step inside” this virtual hall of artifacts, memorials and artwork to feel history come alive. The CAF Red Tail Squadron is virtually curating a collection of items of significance to the Tuskegee Airmen, from a flight jacket worn by pilot Woodrow Crocket, to the Congressional Gold Medal awarded collectively to the Tuskegee Airmen, to a mural of Clarence Dart adorning the streets of Elmira, NY.

We’ve started this treasure trove of items to peruse, and now we pass the torch to YOU. Does someone in your family have any artifacts significant to the Tuskegee Airmen experience? Do you have a memorial to the Tuskegee Airmen in your community? Share that knowledge and inspire those who want to know more by including a photo of your Tuskegee Airmen artifact or memorial in our Virtual Museum, and play an important role in our mission, without your item ever leaving home! Tell us about it and include your piece of history in the Virtual Museum!

What began as a dream to broadcast the inspirational message of the Tuskegee Airmen across the entire country has become a reality since the founding of the CAF Red Tail Squadron. As the years have gone by we have made some amazing strides – the full restoration of our P-51C Mustang Tuskegee Airmen, the success of our RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit mobile movie theater, and a treasure trove of free educational resources that are accessed and used by teachers and youth leaders at an ever-increasing rate.

The launch of the new CAF Red Tail Squadron Virtual Museum is the next big adventure, and only propels our inspirational message to a wider audience. Check it out, participate and share the news!

This is a community collaborative effort and we are excited to facilitate the special kind of excitement that comes from each one of us sharing our knowledge about the remarkable Tuskegee Airmen. THANK YOU for being a part of this important journey!

 

The CAF Red Tail Squadron is a volunteer-driven organization dedicated to educating audiences across the country about the history and legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen, America’s first black military pilots and their support personnel. Learn more at www.redtail.org.
