The CAF Red Tail Project is now officially part of the Big Three social networking entities – Twitter, Facebook and, as of September 24, blogging with Blogspot.  We’ll be updating Twitter and Facebook regularly, but you can look for something new on the Blog (cuz’ there’s more room to type!) at least once a week.
     Today’s news is that we’re working hard on the Fall, 2010 issue of the Red Tail Mail newsletter.  This issue will feature some surprises (a great personnel addition to the Project), a salute to a life well lived (a tribute to Minnesota Tuskegee Airman, USAF Col.(ret) Kenneth O. Wofford who passed away September 5), some interesting information about how other local and national groups are using mobile exhibits – such as the “Rise Above” exhibit that Project will be building – to motivate and educate young people, and the Maximum Lift column.

     Also, kudos to the Project’s own Tim Barzen, a retired 747 pilot, who was interviewed on a local Twin Cities’ TV station last night (September 23)  in reference to the “near miss” flight situation that affected a US Air jet and a cargo plane.  Here’s a link to that interview:

Keep looking skyward –
