Speaker Series: Red Tail Pilots

As Tuskegee airmen in World War II, Lt. Col. Leo Gray and Lt. Col. George Hardy flew with the 332nd Fighter Group, “The Red Tails,” fighting both the Nazi war machine and American prejudice. They will discuss their experiences as America’s first black military pilots, joined by honorary Red Tail pilot Michael McKenzie, President and CEO of Vision of Flight, an Orlando-based organization that introduces youngsters to aviation/aerospace activities and careers.
