Flying like a Tuskegee Airman

Ron Spriggs, oral historian and founder of an exhibit dedicated to the Tuskegee Airmen, uses a model plane to simulate the flight pattern of 1940’s fighter aircraft while Senior Airman Timothy Sands, dressed in World War II pilot attire, pretends to fly during an African American/Black History Month breakfast on Feb. 26, 2013 at Grand Forks Air Force Base. N.D. The breakfast presentation, titled “Gladiators of the Sky,” was hosted by the African American Cultural Association and featured a special presentation about the Tuskegee Airmen.
