Red Tail Returns!

On Wednesday the 5th, the P-51C Tuskegee Airmen returned to its home base at Fleming Field! It was met by reporters, journalists, fans and a significant crew of CAF members. Tuskegee Airman Kenneth Wofford was on hand as well! It was an exciting moment in the Minnesota Wing's history, and we are very happy that so many people were able to share it with us! Thank you to everyone who helped make the day run so smoothly. A note: There were so many beautiful photos from this event... I was only able to post so many. I wish I could have posted them all! Thank you to everyone who submitted photos, they were terrific!!!!
