We are so excited to be taking our RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit to the Thunder Over Michigan Air Show tomorrow and Sunday in Ypsilanti, Michigan! Not only will our exhibit be free to show attendees and our P-51 Mustang be on static display for up-close and personal views of this fine aircraft, but we have a special treat in store. Original members of the Tuskegee Airmen will join us at the event to sign autographs and interact with visitors!

Have you ever wanted to ask one of these heroes in person about the strength of character and the perseverance it took to not only to make history but to also help win a war? Or even just thank them for their service to our country? Now is your chance!

If you’re in Michigan, we encourage you to come to this fun, inspiring and educational air show and see our RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit yourself and meet these living legends. Not many folks get the chance to shake hands and say thanks to men that mean so much to our country’s history. Meeting a Tuskegee Airmen is an opportunity not to be missed!

See you in Michigan!
