The Tuskegee Airmen Featured in the Oakland Aviation Museum

I got to visit the Oakland Aviation Museum which features many large aircraft, including an original cargo plane used for Steven Spielberg’s film Indiana Jones.

The museum had an extensive exhibit on the many African American men who served for the allied air forces in World War II, in comparison to World War I which had significantly less African Americans who were trained in flight.

The African American airmen that were trained at the Tuskegee Army Airfield consisted of the 332nd Fighter Group and the 477th Bombardment Group during the war.
