The RISE ABOVE TRAVELING EXHIBIT
The RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit is a 53’ mobile movie theater featuring two compelling original short RISE ABOVE films that tell the story of the Tuskegee Airmen and the WASP.
The Exhibit Trailer’s first location will be stationed at the Waterfront Village Parking Lot, 20 Wilkeson Way, across from the “first-of-its-kind” African American Veterans Monument located at the Buffalo and Erie County Naval & Military Park from August 30 to September 9, 2023. The Exhibit will be open to the general public from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday (closed on Sunday).
A fully restored WWII-era P-51C Mustang, the signature aircraft of the Tuskegee Airmen. Since the WASP flew all of the World War II aircraft, the exhibit can also be supported by any number of warbirds local to the communities visited allowing the crew to tell many different stories about the WASP.
The P-51C Mustang will be located at Signature Flight Support, Cheektowaga, NY for flights and tours. Please visit our auction site to win a chance to “Embark on a Once-in-a-Lifetime Flight on the P-51C Tuskegee Airmen Red Tail Mustang.” The-AAVM-Tuskegee-P-51C-Mustang-Flights
