Photo: FINISHING TOUCHES — Artist Rusty Baker adds detail to his Tuskegee Airmen mural, which features Steubenville, Ohio brothers Jerome and John “Ellis” Edwards and eight planes. Jerome Edwards was killed in 1943 when the P-51 he was piloting crashed on takeoff, but his younger brother went on to earn the Distinguished Flying Cross after single-handedly shooting down two Messerschmitts.
