  • Pictured above is some beautiful digital artwork of a P-51D Mustang shooting down a Bf-109 over Europe, 1944. Who else just loved the checkered noses and tails on P-51s? If anyone can identify what unit the P-51 above is portraying then tell me in the comments please. Id really appreciate it! The bubble canopy of the P-51D arrived in Europe soon after D-Day so that's why I believe this was taken in 1944 but it's possible 1945. By the end of the war all but one of the Eighth's Air Force  fighter groups flew them. It could work as an escort for bombers, fighter, or a fighter-bomber. It had a maximum speed of 437 miles per hour and a range of 2080 miles with a service ceiling of 41,900 feet. It was an excellent aircraft being both fast and very maneuverable. Most P-51s were also equipped with 6 powerful 12.7 mm machine guns in the wings and some time plus 2 × 454kg (1000 pound) bombs on the wings. The P-51 became the main plane for several aces and famous fighter groups like the Tuskegee Airmen or more popularly known as "Red Tails" for the red paint on their tails. As one of their pilots said, "We weren't ordered, we were requested." There were also other aces like Claude Crenshaw who in a P-51D named "Louisana Heat Wave", scoring 7 victories. An excellent airctaft indeed. Tag two friends if you enjoyed this post! Thanks! -

  • Peter Teichman's P-51D Mustang 'Tall in the Saddle', this aircraft is part of his Hangar 11 Collection. Sadly Peter decided to retire from airshow displays last year, so opportunities to see his collection may be hard to come by. She is wearing her original 332nd Fighter Group scheme as part of the 'Red Tails', the 332nd were also referred to as the Tuskegee Airmen - the first all African American group in the USAAF. Taken at the 2016 Shuttleworth Military Pageant.

  • Tuskegee Airmen P-51 Mustang
"Red Tails" the story of the "Tuskegee Airmen" and stands bright in the annals of United States history. Formed as an experiment to see if black pilots could compete in the arena of aerial combat. The triumphant record that these brave men recorded under difficult conditions (created both by the enemy and by their own country) proved once and for all that racial prejudices have no place in the world of free men. 
Depicted here, having successfully engaged a German Me-109F over Italy, is the P-51B Mustang piloted by Capt. Ed Toppins of the 99th Fighter Squadron, 332nd Fighter Group of the U.S. Army Air Corps. The 332nd fought in the Sicilian and Italian campaigns as well as bomber escort into the heart of the Third Reich. Bomber crews grew to be thankful for the sight of an escort of the "Red Tails", as the reputation of theTuskegee Airmen was so great that one newspaper even claimed they never lost an escorted bomber to enemy air action (a claim now debated by combat records) . The Tuskegee Airmen flew over 15,000 sorties during the war, accounting for 109 enemy aircraft shot down, and were awarded over 1,000 medals. As a price, 150 paid the unltimate sacrifice for freedom, a freedom that within their own country would take decades for them to fully realize.

  • This weekend at the Reno Air Races I had the tremendous privilege of meeting Lt. Col. Harry T. Stewart Jr.  And Let Col. Alexander Jefferson.

Lt Col. Stewart has a book that I highly recommend called Soaring to Glory.
He shot down 3 FW190’s in fifteen minutes and his team won the first USAF Gunnery Meet @
Las Vegas AFB, NV in 1949.

Lt Col. AJefferson was one of 32 Tuskegee POW’s and has been a panelist at the Museum of Flight.

  • What an amazing weekend hanging out with Boyscout troop #75 at #falconfieldairport in Peachtree City, Ga. It’s amazing when kids can collaborate the innocent love of machine and history. They begin to consider things they have never considered before. Making our world a better place filled with understanding, bringing back a sense of empathy and administering a dose of love.
#lovehealsall it is my God given duty to impact every community I am involved in through just simply being me and sharing. ♥️⚜️💋#tuskegeeairmen #redtails #peachtreecityga #falconfieldairport #troop75ptcumc #troop75ptc
