The Tuskegee Airmen, the first cadet graduates to earn their wings 75 years ago at Tuskegee, becoming the first black U. S. Army Air Corps pilots, have a rich history that begins in WWII but reaches far beyond those confines. In conjunction with the celebration of the accomplishments of the Tuskegee Airmen, the weekend will also place a focus on the accomplishments of all African-American pilots from WWII to the present.

The Commemorative Air Force Dixie Wing will assemble at Dekalb-Peachtree Airportall the type of airplanes flown by the Tuskegee Airmen. Along with other famous aircraft such as a FG-1D Corsair, SBD-5 Dauntless dive bomber, T-6 Texan, C-46, Stearman bi-planes, Douglas DC-3 and after four years a B-17 Flying Fortress will offer rides and cockpit tours.

Meet WWII Veterans and noted authors, attend a WWII 8th Air Force Fighter Mission Briefing, enjoy 1940’s Hollywood entertainers, visit with WWII reenactors, participate in a photography workshop and attend a dinner symposium with the original Tuskegee Airmen at the 57th Fighter Group restaurant on Saturday evening.
