    Comments about this product:

    I own this movie well-done by HBO, and a reason now subscribe. I believe it could easily have been a major film distribution. I watched it with my Mother and she asked me to send her a copy. She works with faith-based youth organizations. I recommend this movie be shown to young students and young adults who are unaware of the contributions of Black pilots in defense of their country--a country which did not embrace them nor their sacrifices and triumphs in the face of major obstacles.

      Comments about this product:

      I bought several copies of this film to give as gifts and to have them autographed by actual Tuskegee Airmen. My son aspires to be a pilot/astronaught and often request to watch this film on our family movie night. I love that he loves this movie. Education, Inspiration, and Entertainment all wrapped up in one film. You cant beat that.

        This movie will be part of the collection we have in our DVD library for use by adults with intellectual disabilities. This will incite great discussion about racism, attitudes, history, FDR, World War II
