Find out in Red Tails, previously seen on public television, as the film takes you directly to the Tuskegee training base as it exists today. And — through the use of archival footage — transports you to the battles where some of America’s bravest men fought in the air and on the ground. Hear from their family and friends, and see film and pictures from the war that capture the thrill and danger of air battle over Europe.
