The 332nd Fighter Group's "Red-Tail Angel."
Composed primarily of pilots from the celebrated Tuskegee Airmen, the 332nd Fighter Group had one of WWII's most impressive combat records. The Allies gave them the nickname, "Red-Tail Angels," because the tails on their P-51 Mustangs were distinctively painted crimson. The unit received a Distinguished Unit Citation in March 1945 for successfully completing the longest bomber escort mission of WWII.
