Antes de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, ningún piloto negro había volado en el ejército estadounidense. En 1941, el Cuerpo Aéreo del Ejército formó un escuadrón de pilotos exclusivamente negros. Eran conocidos como los aviadores de Tuskegee. Durante el resto de la guerra, estos pilotos se capacitaron, volaron en misiones y lucharon valientemente contra las potencias del Eje.

Los aviadores de Tuskegee arriesgaron sus vidas para luchar junto a las fuerzas de los Aliados en la Segunda Guerra Mundial y demostrar su valía como miembros del ejército estadounidense. Aprende sobre los héroes que volaron para cambiar el curso de la historia a través de historias de la vida real de misiones de escolta, combates aéreos y ataques arriesgados.
