Opening in theaters January 20, 2012, Red Tails is about a crew of African American pilots in the Tuskegee training program. Having faced segregation and racism of the worst kind and kept mostly on the ground during World War II, these Airmen are called into duty under the guidance of Col. A.J. Bullard.
"In 1944, as the war in Europe continues to take its toll on Allied forces, the Pentagon brass has no recourse but to consider unorthodox options - including the untried and untested African-American pilots of the experimental Tuskegee training program. Just as the young Tuskegee men are on the brink of being shut down and shipped back home, they are given the ultimate chance to show their courage. Against all the odds, with something to prove and everything to lose, these intrepid young airmen take to the skies to fight for their country - and the fate of the free world."-- Pittsburgh Mr. Movietimes.
