RED WING, MINN. – The Commemorative Air Force (CAF) Red Tail Squadron, America’s tribute to the Tuskegee Airmen, has published the first-ever, complete, up-to-date and searchable Tuskegee Airmen Pilot Roster available to the public online at redtail.org. The database contains details of the 1,007 pilots who received their wings through the Tuskegee Airmen program.
This landmark project was made possible by a collaboration of data from the Air Force Historical Research Agency and other Tuskegee Airmen historians. Information on Tuskegee Airmen pilots was collected and analyzed for accuracy by all three parties, resulting in the complete online, searchable pilot roster, a milestone for educating and inspiring people wanting to learn more about our nation’s first black military pilots.
