The CAF Red Tail Squadron may have evolved over the years, but our mandate remains the same. Honor, educate, inspire. While our team is out on the road with the P-51C Mustang Tuskegee Airmen and RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit at events, the home crew is hard at work creating and maintaining high value materials online for anyone looking to learn more, and be inspired by, the Tuskegee Airmen.

One recent addition is a page on our site featuring reputable resources to further your learning about the Tuskegee Airmen. Unfortunately, as with many other niches of history, misinformation floods the internet. On redtail.org, you can trust that all content is held to the highest standards of research and accuracy. Check out these sources outside our organization recommended by our staff.

The CAF Red Tail Squadron strives to be a top source of historically accurate content about the Tuskegee Airmen, fully vetted by the researchers and historians that support our work. Learn, be inspired and share with others!

 

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.
