The Tuskegee Airmen

Duration :

107

Summary: The 'fighting 99th' was the first squadron of African-American U.S. Army Air Corps combat fighter pilots in WWII. When they began training, few, if any, in the Army wanted them there. They had to prove that they were stronger, tougher, smarter and better fliers than most white pilots...and they did! Laurence Fishburne (1993 Best Actor Oscar(R) nominee for 'Whats Love Got to Do With It?') stars in this high-flying drama as a Chicago law-school graduate whose determination to serve his country led him to intense training in Tuskegee, Alabama...and into action in the dangerous skies over North Africa and Europe.

Vance, Andre Braugher, Christopher McDonald, John Lithgow as Senator Conyers and Cuba Gooding Jr. Directed by Robert Markowitz; teleplay by Paris Qualles and Trey Ellis and Ron Hutchinson, story by Robert Williams and T.S.
