RED WING, MINN. – The Commemorative Air Force (CAF) Red Tail Squadron, America’s tribute to the Tuskegee Airmen, has announced that their Virtual Museum has gained significant traction since its launch in the fall of 2017, adding new artifacts, memorials, artwork and mementos honoring the Tuskegee Airmen. Anyone with an interest in increasing awareness about these iconic American heroes is encouraged to share a photo and information of their items at redtail.org/share-piece-history-virtual-museum/.
Those who want to showcase their items on the website will be entered in the CAF Red Tail Squadron’s monthly drawing for a prize, as well as a grand prize drawing at the end of the year. This promotion is the squadron’s way of saying thank you to the community of supporters who are working together to make the CAF Red Tail Squadron Virtual Museum the destination for gaining a personal, human perspective of the experience of the Tuskegee Airmen.
New additions to the Virtual Museum include underwater wreckage of aircraft flown by Tuskegee Airman Frank Moody explored by the group Diving With A Purpose, and a photo of Tuskegee Airman Charles Lane flying a P-51 on a mission over Europe taken from inside the B-17 it was assigned to escort.
