I am glad the pilot walked away but I it sad the plane might not ever fly again.

Warbird Wednesday!

Some rather sad news for today. The P-51 Mustang seen in my photograph made a crash landing earlier today at Dallas Executive Airport. Fortunately, the pilot walked away without injury, but apparently the plane suffered extensive damage. The rare P-51C Mustang, owned by the Commemorative Air Force, travels the country educating people on the history and legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen.

Black Americans had been denied access to flight training in a then segregated US military. In 1940 President Roosevelt, under intense pressure, allowed Blacks into flight training with the US Army Air Corps at Tuskegee Army Air Field, Alabama. Many felt that allowing Blacks into flight training would end in failure and prove that Black Americans should remain in menial jobs. The Tuskegee Airmen, as these first Black aviators came to be know, had a very different idea. They set out to create and achieved a record of excellence during their training a subsequent service in combat. In the process, they overcame the belief that men can be judged be the color of their skin. In 1948, the US military was finally desegregated.

In my photo, we see the Commemorative Air Force's P-51C "Tuskegee Airmen" on the ramp at Culpeper Airport in preparation for the Arsenal of Democracy Fly Over of Washington DC, taking place on the 70th anniversary of Victory in Europe Day, honoring the heroes that fought in World War II.
