We are pleased to announce that we have spots available TODAY and TOMORROW for private showings of the RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit for groups or individuals in Hillsboro, Oregon! Reserve your spot at http://www.eventbrite.com/e/rise-above-traveling-exhibit-tuskegee-airmen-tickets-17590140584.

This weekend we will be featured at the Oregon International Air Show at the Hillsboro Airport, alongside the likes of the US Navy Blue Angels, US Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcon, The Bremont Horsemen and MANY other exciting demonstrations.

Our RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit will be on-site at the event (and our P-51C Mustang will be performing in the show AND on static display!) but today and tomorrow could be YOUR chance to bring your community organization, church group, office, troop or other group – or even just yourself! – for the chance to see our original and inspirational film “Rise Above” for free in our beautiful RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit.

The exciting RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit is a fully functional movie theater featuring the original short film “Rise Above,” designed to take the audience on a journey through time – and then through the air. Visitors get an intimate look at the struggles and challenges faced by the Tuskegee Airmen, who showed extraordinary courage and strength of character as they fought for their right to serve our country during WWII. The theater’s dynamic 160-degree panoramic screen creates the sensation of being in the cockpit soaring above the clouds in the P-51C Mustang, experiencing the excitement and thrill of flying breath-taking aerobatic maneuvers. It’s much more than a history lesson; the Tuskegee Airmen’s ability to triumph over adversity serves as a means to inspire others to RISE ABOVE obstacles in their own lives and achieve their goals.

Reserve your spot now and join us! And share this with your friends and family in the Portland Metro area so they too can be inspired to RISE ABOVE!


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.
