Did You Know?

During the “Tuskegee Experience” there were 44 classes to graduate

In March 7, 1942, the first class of Single Engine (SE) pilots (42-C-SE) graduated five cadets: George ‘Spanky’ Roberts (Back Row,Center) and Mac Ross (Back Row Right) were two of the 11 West Virginia State College graduates to be accepted to the Tuskegee Institute. They would be in a class of 13 where they would become part of the five who would graduate to become the first Tuskegee Airmen. Lt. Roberts was made the Commanding Officer of the 99th Pursuit Squadron (99th Fighter Squadron in May 1942) and Lt. Ross was appointed Commanding Officer of the 100th Pursuit Squadron (100th Fighter Squadron in May 1942). Roberts would fly over 100 missions and Ross would be killed in action over Europe.

The Friends of Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site invite you to experience the amazing history of the Tuskegee Airmen at the National Historic Site at Moton Field in Tuskegee, Alabama.
