Fantasy of Flight is hosting a panel entitled, “Legends & Legacies: They Dared to Fly” featuring the original Tuskegee Airmen . This is a rare opportunity to listen to these legendary WWII heroes share their first-hand stories from 10 a.m. through 3 p.m. Feb. 7 through 9, 2013.
The panel is a part of the new Legends & Legacies: A Symposium Series honoring brave American heroes whose personal contributions became part of our country’s history and helped shape our society. These intimate talks provide an opportunity to learn about the personal struggles, challenges and accomplishments of these Americans.
