The Tuskegee Airmen trained in Tuskegee, Alabama and studied at Tuskegee Institute, now known as Tuskegee University. They flew over 15,500 sorties and completed 1,578 missions with an outstanding record. These pilots of the 332nd Fighter Group painted the "TAILS" of their P-47's "RED", and they were given the nickname "RED TAILS".
Everyone go see RED TAILS IN THEATERS TOMORROW, and while you're at it - take your friends & family!!! I am so proud to be an alumna of this prestigious university!!!!!!
