During the 1940s, an air strip on the outskirts of Tuskegee, Alabama, became the scene of a major "experiment" to determine if African Americans could be trailed to
become combat pilots. The idea of such an experiment seems ludicrous today, but the Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site preserves the setting where
America's first black combat pilots proved they were equal to the task of any other Americans. Over 15,000 men and women passed through Tuskegee between 1942
and 1946 and the pilots trained here proved to be some of the finest airmen of World War II.
