commemorative-air-force-site-logo1446483603.0505This month, the Commemorative Air Force is proud to present the 12 Planes of Christmas, a unique giving program designed to raise awareness and needed funds for their fleet of over 164 vintage military aircraft. A fully restored WWII fighter and iconic aircraft of the legendary Tuskegee Airmen, the CAF Red Tail Squadron’s P-51C Mustang is one of the fleet’s most admired aircraft and part of this fun holiday giving program.

To participate, visit our aircraft’s page from December 1 to December 31 to pledge your support directly to our P-51C Mustang Tuskegee Airmen.

Our Mustang is flown in numerous air shows and events around the country for nine months out of each year in order to reach as many people as possible with our inspirational message. Pledges of support through this year’s 12 Planes of Christmas program will ensure the aircraft’s safe operation and continued ability to honor the history and legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen.

Donating directly to support the maintenance and continued airworthiness of our P-51C Mustang is crucial to our mission. Our aircraft, along with the entire CAF fleet, is an important relic of American history. It requires meticulous attention to detail to ensure its safety and ability to stay in the air for the next generation. Tuskegee Airmen is a museum without walls and your support will help ensure it continues to inspire those who need to hear, see and feel the inspirational message of the Tuskegee Airmen through such a unique vehicle to tell the story.

Pledge your support for this iconic tribute to the legendary Tuskegee Airmen TODAY!
