P-51C Mustang "Tuskegee Airmen" Performs at Fair St. Louis Special Needs Airshow

The Fair St. Louis Airshow lineup featured a truly historic aircraft - the North American P-51C Mustang named "Tuskegee Airmen."  The rare P-51C model is painted to represent the aircraft flown by the racially segregated 332nd Fighter Group, known as the "Red Tails."  The aircraft belongs to the Commemorative Air Force's Minnesota Wing, and it participates in airshows across the country each season.  The aircraft, flown by Bill Shepard, arrived Friday morning and was featured in the Special Needs Airshow at St. Louis Downtown Airport on Saturday.  Here are some views of the aircraft upon its arrival and during the airshow:
