Tuskegee Airmen exhibit returns to Dallas Executive Airport for Black History Month

Dallas Executive Airport celebrates Black History Month with an exhibit honoring the Tuskegee Airmen.

The Commemorative Air Force, which restores and flies American military aircraft, offers “Rise Above,” a 30-minute immersive film about the United States’ first African American military pilots.

The film is shown on a curved, large-format screen that gives viewers a sense of what it was like to fly a a P-51C Mustang, the signature plane of the Tuskegee Airmen.

Besides the film, the exhibit includes World War II artifacts and visits from veterans.

The free exhibit is open 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Feb. 6-17. Space is limited, so to reserve a spot for a class or youth group, contact Tracy Smith, 580.786.6251.
