Storyline

A documentary filmed at Moton Field in Tuskegee Alabama, home to the airmen of the 99th Fighter Squadron. They were the first African American fighter pilots trained to fly in the U.S. Army Air Corps during World War II. Nearly 1,000 pilots trained in Tuskegee and about half of those saw combat, destroying or damaging about 400 enemy aircraft, but found themselves fighting two wars-- the one against fascism abroad, and the one against racism at home.

Terrific--just like the men.
13 August 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Ossie Davis narrated this excellent PBS documentary about the legendary Tuskegee Airmen--a group of black pilots who fought the color barrier to prove themselves during WWII. The film consisted of interviews with some of the surviving pilots, some vintage footage and a few historical recreations. Apart from one small mistake*, the film was very well done--and quite inspiring and fascinating as well. If you enjoy this film, try to find the made for HBO film "The Tuskegee Airmen"--a somewhat fictionalized account of some of these brave men. Well worth seeing--especially because it shows us just how far we have come as a nation.

*This film repeats the same mistake I once thought was true. They state that these fighter pilots NEVER lost a bomber they were escorting. While their record was amazingly good, they actually did lose a few. Dr. Daniel Haulman wrote a paper about this and several other myths about the group--while still lauding their efforts.
