The 99th Pursuit Squadron was the U.S. Army Air Forces’ first African American fighter squadron. The Army Air Corps established a training program for black aviators at the Tuskegee Institute, earning them the nickname "Tuskegee Airmen." Their other nickname, "Red Tails," came after they painted the tail assembly of their fighters a conspicuous crimson. On their 179 bomber escort missions, they lost a total of only 27 bombers – a remarkable record of protection. On one mission to destroy a tank factory in Berlin, they shot down three German Me 262s (history’s first jet fighter) in a single day. For this and the rest of their exemplary service, the squadron was awarded three Distinguished Unit Citations.
