The exciting story of the "Fighting 99th" - the first squadron of Black American pilots to be
allowed to fight for their country. It is 1943 and the Germans are winning WWII as the U.S. suffers
huge losses on the ground and in the air. Four newly recruited pilots are united by a desire to serve
their country, at a time when black flyers are not welcomed in the Air Force. Now, through the brutal
demands of their training, to the perils of flying over nations at war, the men they call "The Tuskegee
Airmen" must undertake the riskiest mission of their lives- to prove to America that courage knows no color.
Their success could earn them respect, save lives, and help win a terrible war. Their failure could destroy
more hopes and dreams than their own.
