Warbirds in Review 2015 P-51 Tuskegee Airmen

Aviation Autographs

Brig General Charles E. McGee fought in World War II, as one of the Tuskegee Airmen in the 332nd. A career officer in the United States Air Force for 30 years, he holds a US Air Force record of 409 fighter combat missions flown in World War II, Korea and Vietnam; the highest three-war total of fighter combat missions of any pilot in the U.S. Air Force history. Like all Fighter Groups, the Tuskegee-trained pilots of the 332nd flew fighter aircraft with distinctive paint schemes to assist with identifying friend from foe. The 332nd’s identifying marking was bright red tails on their fighters. The mission of the CAF Red Tail Squadron is to educate audiences across the country about the history and legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen. Doug Rozendahl and Brad Lang will be on hand to talk about the “Red Tail” P-51.
