DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — An Air Force tribute squadron honoring the Tuskegee Airmen is bringing a traveling exhibit to Bethune-Cookman University.
The Commemorative Air Force Red Tail Squadron will have its Rise Above mobile theater exhibit at the Daytona Beach school Tuesday and Wednesday.
Through an original short film, the exhibition tells the story of America’s first black military pilots and support personnel during their time in World War II. It also uses the theater’s 160-degree panoramic screen to create for viewers the sensation of being in the cockpit inside the P-51C Mustang the Tuskegee pilots used.
The exhibit will run both days from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
