Unique P-51C Mustang Honoring The Tuskegee Airmen Coming To Antelope Valley
South St. Paul, MN (February 14, 2014) On March 20-22, 2014, the CAF Red Tail Squadron’s red-tailed Mustang, Tuskegee Airmen, will be offering a once-in-a-lifetime backseat ride in the rare P-51C fighter airplane at General Wm J.

Your pilot is certified for WWI I vintage aircraft and will inform you on the unique history of the airplane which features a bright red tail in honor of the famed Tuskegee airmen who flew red-tailed fighters as they protected U.S. bombers on missions over Germany.

The Squadron, a volunteer-driven non-profit organization that is part of the
Commemorative Air Force (CAF), completed two $1 million restorations of the Mustang, named Tuskegee Airmen. The second restoration was finished in 2009 and the airplane has been on the air show circuit ever since.
Plan now to join us at Gen. William J. Fox Airfield, as Lancaster & Palmdale are excited to host the U.S. Navy Blue Angels as part of the inaugural event, Friday, March 21 and Saturday, March 22, 2014 at Fox Field. Air Show fans will be captivated by an array of exciting and thrilling jets, gravity-defying aerobatic performers and the rumble of historic aircraft. We’ll have something for everyone in the sky and on the ground – with the beautiful P-51C Mustang performing in the show!

Dating back to the 1800′s when African-Americans would catch catfish in the Tombigbee River and bring it uptown to sell, the smell of catfish cooking would permeate the air. Hence the name Catfish Alley, which became famous for blues, dining and early African-American business leaders. The event was created years ago to celebrate contributions of notable African-American residents and leaders of our community. Don’t miss this fun and special event suitable for the entire family. Admission is $7.50 per person. WE ARE CURRENTLY SEEKING DONATIONS TO ALLOW THE RISE ABOVE TRAVELING EXHIBIT TO PARTICIPATE. IF YOU ARE ABLE TO DONATE, PLEASE CONTACT MARVONA WELSH AT 812-240-2560.
