(Another special edition Black History Month History in Bricks.)

Three P-51 Mustangs of the Tuskegee Airmen on a Fighter Interception patrol during World War 2.

Originally a plot to prove that Black Men couldn't fly that failed Spectacularly, the Tuskegee Airmen was an all African-American air unit formed at the start of the United State's involvement in World War 2. Originally, it was rough starting, and when they started doing well, high brass tried shutting the operation down, but due to the strains of war, as well as she good persuasion, the Air Unit managed to stay in action for the rest of the war and even a year after.

The Tuskegee were most famous for using the supreme North American P-51 Mustang, and they were given the nickname 'Red Tails' due to their brightly red painted tail sections. The Tuskegee built a reputation for being a supreme bomber escort wing, and a popular myth arose that they never lost a bomber. While this was in fact a myth, as records state they lost anywhere around 25 Bombers, those were in fact small numbers.

Throughout their career as a Fighter Escort squadron among other things, the Tuskegee went toe to toe to such advanced fighters as the high altitude Fw-190, and even danced with the Jet-Powered Me-262.
More often than not, the Tuskegee would triumph over any of these foes.

The Tuskegee airmen are definitely an inspirational bunch proving to the snobby white rich people of the 20th century wrong.
