The upcoming exhibit, The Tuskegee Airmen: Their Untold Stories, is the largest in the Museum’s history, and will feature immersive audio and video, imagery, and original artifacts to pay tribute to this trailblazing group of men and women. Visitors will hear first-hand accounts from Airmen and their descendants, learn about the “second war” they fought against systemic racism and discrimination, and discover how that fight helped lay the groundwork for the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 60s.
The Tuskegee Airmen changed the world, and if their story is kept alive, they will continue to do so.
The plane, a P-51C is painted with the distinctive red tail of the Tuskegee Airmen and is owned and operated by the Commemorative Air Force. Flights will take off from Signature Flight Support at Bradley International Airport, across from the Museum. Flights will be scheduled between November 2 – 5.
