The Tuskegee Airmen: "They Dared To Fly" Exhibit
This exhibit features fascinating and inspiring interviews with original Tuskegee Airmen who overcame extreme odds with dignity, honor, and valor. Their dream to fly for their country ultimately commanded significant civil rights changes in our nation.
The Tuskegee Airmen symposiums will be moderated by Guinness World Record holder, educator, and aviation pioneer Barrington A. Irving, Jr., the youngest person and first African American ever to fly solo around the world. Irving is thrilled to present the airmen to Fantasy of Flight guests: "The Tuskegee Airmen were a great inspiration to me. They had fought two wars--one for their country and another for equality and respect when they got back home. They are my heroes."
Legends & Legacies events are included in General Admission to Fantasy of Flight.
