The Tuskegee Airmen Red Tails Monument will be built on the United States Air Force Academy campus in Colorado Springs, Colo. in honor of the recently renamed General Benjamin O. Davis Airfield, who served as the first commander of the Tuskegee Airmen in WWII. The monument will include a pavilion with historic information and displays of the Tuskegee Airmen, a replica of the North American P-51D Mustang that was famously flown by these heroic airmen, as well as the new advanced trainer aircraft for the U.S. Air Force, the Boeing T-7 Red Hawk, which is named to commemorate the Tuskegee Airmen.
The Red Tails are noted for their perseverance and courage as the first African American Airmen in the United States Army Air Force after many years of racial segregation across the nation and especially in the town of Tuskegee, Alabama where they received their education at the Tuskegee Institute.
