Six ‘Red Tails’ Reuniting in N.Y.

Six ‘Red Tails’ Reuniting in N.Y.

Elmira, N.Y.-area residents next month will have a rare chance to meet a group of World War II heroes whose exploits were out of the public view for more than a generation.

Six of the original Tuskegee Airmen are confirmed as guests at a reunion May 24 at the Wings of Eagles Discovery Center in Big Flats. The Tuskegee Airmen were a group of young black men who enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Corps during World War II and had to fight racial prejudice at home while battling the enemy overseas.

The event, called “Return of the Red Tails,” will feature multiple festivities throughout the day, topped by a grand evening gala at the museum.
