During World War II, the 332nd Fighter Group and the 477th Bombardment Group of the United States Army Air Forces—better-known as the Tuskegee Airmen—were the first black aviators to fly for the U.S. military. Learn about their heroism in Rise Above, a 30-minute film highlighting the obstacles these men faced as they overcame history to become U.S. Army Air Corps pilots in the early ’40s. The film will show every hour during regular operating hours at the Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum. Mon-Sat 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sun noon-5 p.m.
