Rise Above – The Tuskegee Experience
May 9 all-day

The Commemorative Air Force (CAF) Red Tail Squadron, America’s tribute to the Tuskegee Airmen, today announced the spring dates and locations for their RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit mobile theater and P-51C Mustang Tuskegee Airmen. Each stop offers locals the opportunity to learn about one of the most remarkable and little-known groups of American history.
The mission of the CAF Red Tail Squadron is to educate audiences across the country about the history and legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen – America’s first black military pilots and their support personnel – so their strength of character, courage and ability to triumph over adversity may serve as a means to inspire others to RISE ABOVE obstacles in their own lives and achieve their goals.
“The RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit is designed to take visitors on a journey through time, then virtually through the air with our panoramic cinema experience. And there is nothing quite like seeing our Mustang and hearing the roar of the engine in person,” said Brad Lang, CAF Red Tail Squadron leader and one of the pilots of their P-51C Mustang. “This is an unique and inspirational way for people to see first-hand the struggles and challenges faced by the Tuskegee Airmen. These fine Americans showed extraordinary courage as they fought for their right to serve our country, and it’s a part of our history that simply must be heard.”
The CAF Red Tail Squadron is using the excitement of aviation as a tool to help change lives, and these events are a platform to bring this inspirational message to audiences everywhere.
