Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site

Between 1941 and 1946, 1,000 African-American pilots were trained to fly fighter planes at Moton Field and Tuskegee Army Air Field in Alabama and went on to become one of the most respected aviators of World War II. The Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site preserves the legacy of U.S. Military's first regiment of Black pilots.
