If you have not seen the movie Red Tails as yet you should do yourself a favor and go to the movies this weekend. I just got back from watching it. It has some of the best aviation video simulation and real footage I've seen yet. It is about the Tuskegee Airmen of WWII. It seems to be pretty accurate to the history, with a little romance tossed in--I guess they need to do that to keep it interesting. Anyway check it out.
Here is a link to some additional information about the men: http://www.history.com/videos/tuskegee-airman-luther-smith#tuskegee-airman-luther-smith
