Help us Honor the Red Tails
As part of the ongoing preparations for the new US Freedom Pavilion: Boeing Center, The National WWII Museum is in the process of restoring a P-51 Mustang that will be painted with the “Red Tails” markings of the 332nd Fighter Group, a unit of the now-celebrated Tuskegee Airmen.
Museum Trustees Jeffrey Carter and Todd Ricketts are leading the charge to raise the funds required to complete the restoration.
Carter recently posted this appeal on his blog:
George Lucas is releasing a film soon about the Tuskegee Airman. I cannot wait to see it. It’s a fabulous American story that is even more compelling because of the racism that the Tuskegee Airman had to overcome at home, and in the Army of their country. The National WWII Museum started undertaking a project over a year ago to celebrate the contribution of the Tuskegee Air Corps to World War Two. My fellow board member, Todd Ricketts, and I are heading up this project. That project needs your help.
