Due to Covid-19, The Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site
is officially CLOSED. However, visitors are welcome to walk the grounds, read waysides, and photograph historic structures.
Additionally, the gift shop is OPEN Tuesday through Saturday from 9:00 am - 4:30 pm. The shop is located in the Orientation Room on the west side of Hangar 1. Visitors may purchase educational items, obtain a park brochure, Junior Ranger program, Passport cancellation stamp, and watch Tuskegee Airmen: Sacrifice and Triumph.
Park management is planning to enter Phase II of re-opening by allowing the visiting public into Hangar 1 on Veterans Day, November 11, 2020. Hangar 1 will be the only park structure open to the public until Phase III begins. A ranger will be on site every day from this day forward, Monday - Saturday, to answer questions and provide interpretive services.
Phase III of re-opening is scheduled for December 14, 2020, meaning the park is to be fully opened to visitation. Please bear in mind that these plans are tentative and subject to change.
The story of the Tuskegee Airmen can’t be told without mentioning the strategic and life-saving work of the Tuskegee Weather Detachment. See this interview.

Air Force will wear special uniforms honoring the Tuskegee Airmen for their Oct. 3 home football game vs. Navy.
The Falcons' helmets for the game will be modeled after the tails of the P-51 Mustang aircraft flown by the Tuskegee Airmen, the first all-Black unit in the history of the Army Air Corps, the precursor to the U.S. Air Force. The Tuskegee Airmen, also known as the “Red Tails,” were credited with flying more than 15,000 individual sorties and shooting down 112 enemy planes during World War II.
