President Barack Obama’s inaugural parade will include a tribute to the Tuskegee Airmen, an Alabama-based unit that broke the color barrier during World War II. The black fliers, who were portrayed in the movie “Red Tails,” trained at Moton Field in Tuskegee in the 1940s and became the nation’s first black pilots during the war. The parade float will feature a model of a P-51 Mustang, which the Tuskegee Airmen are best known for flying.
