Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site
The Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site was originally constructed in 1941 in Tuskegee, Alabama as the Moton Field flight training base for the pioneering pilots known as the Tuskegee Airmen. The field was named after the Tuskegee Institute principal Robert Russa Moton, who died the previous year. Prior to 1940, African Americans were banned from flying for the U.S. military, however, Civil rights organizations and the black press exerted pressure which eventually resulted in the formation of an all African-American pursuit squadron that became known as the Tuskegee Airmen. Moton Field was the only primary flight facility for African-American pilot candidates in the U.S. Army Air Corps during World War II. Built between 1940-1942 with funding from the Julius Rosenwald Fund, the Tuskegee Institute's Moton Field was assigned officers from the Army Air Corps to oversee training and also textbooks and flight gear were provided. Between 1941 and 1945 over 1,000 African American pilots were trained for the war effort. Though Moton field was closed in 1946 and a portion deeded to the city of Tuskegee as the municipal airport in 1972, the National Historic Site was established on November 6, 1998. Since October 10, 2008, visitors have been able to tour a restored Hanger One, which is open free of charge on Wednesday - Sunday.
