Received the link in an email from a friend.
What are the odds that you would ever find a fighter escort pilot who flew with you on a combat mission? They are great, but it can happen and did.
This story is about Herb Heilbrun & John Leahr. One a B-17 pilot, one a red-tail fighter pilot. If you don’t know what a red-tail fighter pilot is, you will have to watch this story, a story that began in a small rust belt town with two little boys in the second grade.
Our hat’s are off to both Herb and John. We thank them for this inspiring story. Sit back, enlarge the screen and enjoy.

This link below came from a friend. It is a follow up to the movie ‘Red Tails’ post. This story is featured in a CNN Profile.
Herbert Carter, 94, one of the original 33 Tuskegee Airmen pilots, holds a portrait of his wife, Mildred Hemmon Carter, in her flight uniform. She was the first black female pilot in Alabama and is counted among the history-making Tuskegee Airmen, too. He eventually rose to the rank of lieutenant colonel. Married nearly 70 years, the two were known as Tuskegee’s “first couple.”
A little long but well worth the read…:-) Enjoy!
