P-51 Project honors Tuskegee Airmen

http://www.redtail.org/about/mission.html

The CAF Red Tail Project was started in the 1990s by a group of volunteer members of the Minnesota Wing of the Commemorative Air Force. As they were getting ready to restore a WWII-vintage P-51C Mustang fighter, Don Hinz, a pilot and entrepreneur presented a unique idea. Instead of just restoring another old U.S. Army Air Corps airplane to fly at air shows, why not have this Mustang be an educational tool? It could be used to create interest in the history and legacy of the first black military pilots, the Tuskegee Airmen, who flew this type of airplane during World War II. Their story is rarely mentioned in schools even though they had a unique role in 20th century American history.
