If you haven’t been to one of our RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit event stops, you need to get out the calendar and come see us!


As you step inside our decked out 53’ trailer, you’ll find our traveling immersion theater designed to educate the mind and invigorate the senses. Like a mobile ‘big screen’ theater, our exhibit features the original short film, RISE ABOVE, on a customized 160-degree panoramic screen. This dynamic theater experience lets you feel like you’re right there in the cockpit, soaring above the clouds, in your own P-51C Mustang. 35 folks can see this inspiring documentary comfortably seated in our air-conditioned trailer.

Did you know that RISE ABOVE was created by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Adam White of Hemlock Films who specializes in aviation cinema?  This is the third time White has made a documentary featuring the story of the Tuskegee Airmen.  He said in an interview, “It’s been my privilege to meet and work with many of the Tuskegee Airmen while making Red Tail Reborn, Flight of the Red Tail, and now RISE ABOVE. I’m pleased to be part of the team that is ensuring that the dedication and accomplishments of the Tuskegee Airmen will not be forgotten.”  Additionally, The Restorers, a documentary about the restoration of vintage war planes, is also White’s creation, for which he earned his Emmy in 2005.  An interesting side note, White is a licensed pilot himself.



See the entire RISE ABOVE film, and learn about the CAF Red Tail Squadron, at one of our many stops this summer!


The CAF Red Tail Squadron is volunteer-driven 501c3 organization that operates as part of the Commemorative Air Force. For more information about the Squadron and its educational mission, visit www.redtail.org.
