Well, it’s January 20, 2012! Do you plan to see this exciting new movie? The retelling the Tuskegee Airman’s story is sure to impress a lot of folk who might not even know the history of this fighter group! The editors at MAN can’t wait! Be sure to also check out our February 2012 Red Tails issue of MAN for behind the scenes information about the movie and some of the history of the actual Tuskegee Airmen!
Get your candy and popcorn ready! If you haven’t seen the trailer yet in the movies, “Red Tails” is the story of the Tuskegee Airmen, the first African-American pilots to fly in a combat squadron during World War II. Writers: George Lucas (story), John Ridley (screenplay); Director: Anthony Hemingway; Stars: Bryan Cranston, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Terrence Howard.
This promises to be the best aviation history movie ever made and it certainly makes the editors of MAN want to go build a P-51D Mustang! Check out these behind the scenes photos we found.

“The first set images from Red Tails, the George Lucas-produced WWII biopic about the Tuskegee Airmen, have been unveiled. The first look behind the scenes of producer George Lucas’ World War II biopic Red Tails have surfaced. The last we heard from the set, George Lucas was none too thrilled with director Anthony Hemingway’s work and ordered re-shoots that he himself would direct, but that later turned out to be false. Even though these photos appear (according to the film slate) to be over a year old, an inside look is an inside look. Red Tails stars Terrence Howard and Cuba Gooding, Jr. in an ensemble cast that hopes to successfully tell one of WWII’s most intriguing stories.”
