Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site in Macon County, Alabama — The American South (South Central)
The Place Where We Learned to Fly
Moton Field was a small airfield, but it was the scene of great accomplishments. The men and women who came to Moton Field went on to change the nation forever.
This was the place where we learned to fly, we became pilots, we became officers . . . .
