September 12, 1944 . . . low over Northern Italy, the pilots of the 332nd Fighter Group shepherd home a wounded B-24 Liberator of the 455th Bomb Group after a bombing raid on the Me-262 test airfield at Lechfeld, Germany. The men of the 332nd, the first African American combat pilots, would be known as the Tuskegee Airmen. But, in the sky, they were simply called the Red Tails. On this day, the Red Tails will return to their base at Ramitelli. To them, this escort was just another days work. But, to the bomber crew below, they were the difference between life and death.
