For at least 15 years, the CAF Red Tail Project has been all about restoring (twice) its rare red-tailed P51-C Mustang in order to use it as a tool to create interest in the history and legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen.  This mission has involved two things – fundraising and in-the-trenches hard work with rivets, welders, wires, etc.   
     Communication with supporters was accomplished via informal conversations at air shows and hangars, reports at meetings, publicity CDs (after the airplane was rebuilt the first time), the website ( and newsletters.
     Over the past few months, the Project has gotten its wings regarding using social media – like this blog – to keep people informed about what’s going on with the Project.  The Project is on LinkedIn and Twitter. 
     A word about our Twitter account.  It has sort of languished with entries being sporadic at best.  That has changed – effective November 10 we now have Twitter entries each weekday.  We promise to get the most out of our allotment of 140 characters while we fill you in on news and information about the CAF Red Tail Project and related topics.  We hope you’ll follow us, share the link and tweet back as you feel appropriate.  Of course, you can also comment back to us about this blog so don’t be a stranger. 
     “Talk” to you soon – have a great week!
