Those brave Tuskegee pilots of the Second World War celebrate their fifth cinematic anniversary today as part of George Lucas and Anthony Hemingway's RED TAILS - the long-in-gestation project that finally became a reality by 2012 - an important telling of how an against-the-odds ensemble scored such important victories in the skies above Europe, fighting the tyranny of Nazi Germany and the prejudices of their own military's upper echelon decision-makers.
On film and in real life, we salute you all!
