RISE ABOVE – The Tuskegee Airmen Red Tail Exhibit (CAF)

The CAF Red Tail Squadron is committed to telling the inspirational story of the Tuskegee Airmen – America’s first black military pilots – and their support personnel.

They are on a mission to educate people of all ages about these important American icons so their strength of character and ability to triumph over adversity may serve as a means to inspire others to rise above obstacles in their own lives and achieve their goals.

The RISE ABOVE program includes a fully functional mobile movie theater with two compelling original short RISE ABOVE films that tell the story of the Tuskegee Airmen or the WASP, and the obstacles they both overcame to be able to serve their country during WWII. This immersive experience is housed in a climate controlled 53’ mobile theater with expandable sides and equipped with a ramp and hydraulic lift to ensure access to all, comfortably accommodating 30 visitors for each showing. Because of its dynamic 160-degree panoramic screen, the film creates the feeling of being in the cockpit soaring above the clouds. Admission to the exhibit is always FREE to event attendees.

The P-51 “By Request”, which will be performing at the air show, will be on display at the RISE ABOVE exhibit.

This air show is currently seeking a business or group for partnership to help support this exhibit. Please email to inquire about partnering with the show to support this exhibit.
