Resources

Here are a few interesting links that will provide you with further information about the Tuskegee Airmen.

The National Air & Space Museum at the Smithsonian Institute. This link connects you directly to their search engin. Just type in the word “Tuskegee” for a wealth of information. They have a Black Wings exhibit and a book titled “Black Wings: The American Black in Aviation” that may be of interest. They also have an extensive archive of photos that can be searched and ordered for your own collection at a nominal fee. Any information that you can provide will be helpful in their search. I recently found two photos of my Father in their collection that I was not aware of.

The History Net, is where history lives on the Web.
