I admired the red tails since I read a book about those men several years ago.....

The stories of the famed Tuskegee Airmen will live on forever if the Red Tail Project has a say in it. The project, part of the nonprofit educational organization American Airpower Heritage Foundation, seeks to record the oral histories of the remaining airmen and restore a P-51C Mustang, but more funding is necessary. The Cirrus Owners and Pilots Association recently raised $105,000 in one evening for the project. "There are only about 200 remaining airmen, and they are in their 80s, so time is of the essence," said Red Tail Project spokesman Tim Barzen. More information about the project is available online.
