../Dennette's Scale Models Red Tails - The Tuskegee Airmen

The Tuskegee Airmen were black fighter pilots during World War II who flew escort missions with American bombers during the Italian Campaign. They were called "Red Tailed Black Angels" by the bomber crews, because they never lost a single plane to German fighters while they were on escort duty. A lot of my scale models are based on planes that they flew.

Col. William J. Smith, USAFR, President of the Los Angeles Chapter, has set up Web sites for the Tuskegee Airmen International and for the LA Chapter. Since the sites recently moved to AOL, I decided to use this page as a "filter" in case they move again. :-)

Col. Dick Williams of the Confederate Air Force, Southern Minnesota Wing, has some pages on their site devoted to their Red Tail Restoration Project. Lena Horne is their Honorary National Chairperson.
