WARNER ROBINS, Ga. (AP) – The Tuskegee Airmen exhibit has a new and upgraded home in a museum at a central Georgia Air Force base.
The Telegraph of Macon reports (http://bit.ly/KYnzY) that the museum recently completed the move of the Tuskegee exhibit from Hangar One to the World War II hangar in the Museum of Aviation at Robins Air Force Base in Warner Robins.
The new location includes the addition of a replica of a hangar from Moton Field in Tuskegee, Ala.
Organized in 1941, the Tuskegee Airmen were the first black pilots in the U.S. military.
To create the hangar replica, a team from the museum traveled to Moton Field and photographed a preserved Tuskegee Airmen hangar. Donors gave airfield support equipment from the era to add to the exhibit.
