This traveling exhibit highlights the inspiring story of the Tuskegee Airmen with a big screen, theatrical experience. During the original 30-minute movie, "RISE ABOVE," the audience will be transported back in time to what it was like to be a black airman during World War II. It highlights the obstacles faced by America's first black military pilots and their support personnel, known today as the Tuskegee Airmen, as they worked toward their goal of becoming U.S. Army Air Corps pilots in the early 1940s. At the conclusion of the film, the audience will experience the thrill of flying the P-51 Mustang as it is brought to life on the 160-degree panoramic, curved screen.
Regular general admission rates to Wings Over the Rockies will apply; however, there is no charge for the exhibit. Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your scheduled showing in order to pay admission at the Front Desk.
