This photo was captured on a trip to the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture. The PT-13D Stearman Kaydet on display had been used by the Tuskegee Airmen as a training aircraft at Moton Field in Tuskegee, Alabama. The lower door had been signed by Tuskegee Airmen, and is now in display at the museum alongside the aircraft.
