Tuskegee Airmen Exhibit on NBC Connecticut
In spring 2023 the New England Air Museum will unveil our newest exhibit- Tuskegee Airmen: Their Untold Stories.
The New England Air Museum is honored to be working with the children of Tuskegee Airmen to create an extraordinary exhibit. Through first-hand stories about their parent’s war and post-war experiences, visitors will have the rare opportunity to get to know the airmen in a uniquely personal way.
The Tuskegee Airmen achieved excellence while defending our country, exhibiting an extraordinary will and determination to do so under the most unimaginable circumstances. They were subjected to racism, segregation, and often declared to be too inferior to serve, due to their race. Over the course of the war, the Tuskegee Airmen flew 1,578 missions and 15,533 sorties, destroyed 261 enemy aircraft, and won more than 850 medals.
