Red Tail Reborn Special Edition Blu-ray disc.
Amidst the racial naysayers during WWII, the first African-American fighter pilots were commissioned in 1941 to help defend the distressed bombers in the European theater. Under the watch of these pilots, few to no bombers were lost to enemy fighters. These forgotten pilots are known as the Tuskegee Airmen.
The ambition to make these heroes a household name is the primary objective of the Red Tail Project, a group of men and women who honored the Airmen by touring airshows with a restored P-51C Mustang, the famous roaring fighter plane these men flew in combat. The Red Tail Project is part of the CAF, or Commemorative Air Force; a nationwide organization dedicated to preserving WWII aircraft. Like the men they tribute, the Red Tail Project encountered adversity when flying homage to the Airmen, the Mustang, crashed in 2004, killing pilot Don Hinz, who was also the project leader.
The Emmy Award winning Red Tail Reborn, narrated by Michael Dorn, is a tale of inspiration. Historic interviews, unprecedented access, and emotional honesty bring to light the tale of the Airmen and of those who honor them. The Tuskegee Airmen showed the world what hope, determination, and hard work could do. Find out how these lessons are applied to a project recovering from a lost aircraft and a lost friend.
Commentary on this title from Col. Frank Borman - Commander, Apollo 8: The program is outstanding and long overdue. These gentlemen are real heroes!
