"This DVD covers the origins of the Tuskegee group through interviews of the pilots. How they were loved aircraft before WWII and the politics of black airmen at the time. The interviews started with Chief Charles Alfred Anderson interview while flying a cessna172RG. Harry Sheppard, Spann Watson, Woodrow Crockett, Luke Weathers, Louis Purnell, & DR. Brown were some of the others interviewed through out the DVD, starting with telling their feelings on Davis and expectation from Davis during the training period. The 99th went to North Africa for first deployment, then onto Italy and Cicely missions. Mostly showing P-51B's on the clips with once and awhile a P-40 with no regard to time frame. Next they talk about the addition of more aircraft and the beginning of the 332nd. Not many shots from P-47's and no story of the P-47 group that I was hoping for. They talked about the success of bomber protection and the disappointment of the end of the war to what they had to return to. Two big signs, colored this way, whites that way. This makes for a good PBS show."
Nightfighters is a fine documentary

"This documentary is extraordinary in that it includes interviews from not only the fighter pilots but the bomber airmen they protected. Further, it highlights the talented, dedicated and successful black Americans who fervently wished to help win the war. I couldn't wait to share this video with my pilot friends. Well done."

"THIS WAS AN AWESOME STORY. IT WAS VERY INFORMATIVE AND HOPEFULLY HELPFUL IN REMEMBERING OUR HISTORY. THESE MEN FOUGHT WITH GREAT SKILL AND COURAGE."
