The legendary Tuskegee Airmen of the 332nd Fighter Group in WWII were colloquially known as 'Red Tails' or 'Red Tail Angels' due to the deep crimson painted on the noses and tails of their P-51 aircrafts. Despite the racial segregation of the US armed forces, the Tuskegee Airmen loyally served their country, completing 15,000 missions as bomber escorts.
