Tuskegee Airplane Given To Smithsonian


WASHINGTON - One of the planes used to train the Tuskegee Airman has been donated to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture.

The World War II era plane "The Spirit of Tuskegee" completed the cross-country flight to Washington this week.

The plane is set to be restored to its original 1944 condition and will go on temporary display at the Udvar Hazy Center before moving to the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.

Nearly 100 veterans of the Tuskegee Air Corps have reunited in Washington for their national convention this week.

America's first black military pilots are celebrating their 70th anniversary.
