We excited to announce the release of our latest study in history and aluminum "The Planes of the Tuskegee Airmen."

Showcasing the three signature aircraft type flown by America's first black aviators of the 332nd FG during WWII, we are truly honored to have worked closely with our personal Tuskegee Airmen friends who piloted these very aircraft.

Accurate down to the rivet, this collectors print features:

North American Aviation: P-51/D Mustang
Flown by: Capt. Marion Rodgers
332nd Fighter Group
99th Fighter Squadron

Republic: P-47/N Thunderbolt
Flown by: 1st Lt. James Harvey III - America's first "Top Gun"
332nd Fighter Group
99th Fighter Squadron
Aircraft flown in the first 1949 "Top Gun" competition.

North American Aviation: B-25/J Mitchell
Flown by: Capt. Fitzroy "Buck" Newsum
477nd Medium Bombardment Group
617th Bombardment Squadron

This unique commemorative print was produced as a tribute to the nearly 1000 "Documented Originals" and our legendary friends of the Tuskegee Airmen, Hubert L. "Hooks" Jones Chapter in Denver, Co.

Since the groundbreaking 1995 HBO movie release "The Tuskegee Airmen" there has been a wide misunderstanding that all Tuskegee Airmen flew pursuit and escort missions in the famed Red-Tailed P-51 Mustangs in WWII. Not the case. Only a fraction of these airmen actually flew fighter aircraft, including the P-40, P-47 and P-39. The vast majority of Tuskegee Airmen were actually assigned to other duties such as ground personnel, nurses, mechanics and instructors. Many also served in the 477th Bombardment Group as navigators, bombardiers, pilots and co-pilots on the B-25 Mitchell.

Airmail proudly salutes the "Black Birdmen" of the 322 Fighter Group, and the 477nd Medium Bombardment Group. We will forever remember you fellas!
