'Flight Of The Red Tail' Released To DVD

Hemlock Films Doc Continues The Story Of The Red Tail Project

Filmmaker Adam White has released "Flight of the Red Tail," a companion piece that follows three years after release of "Red Tail Reborn." The 12-minute film chronicles the events of the Red Tail Project, including the fatal crash of pilot and project leader Don Hinz in 2004, the five-year restoration journey to flight worthy status, and the captivating stories surrounding its return to the sky in 2009.

"Flight of the Red Tail had to be made, as the story of sacrifice didn't end when Red Tail Reborn was finished filming, it just began," said White. "The film serves as both a strong piece on its own and also as a companion piece to Red Tail Reborn which gives the full history on The Red Tail P-51C Mustang Tuskegee Airmen, the name sake of the famed Alabama trained WWII veterans."

White added, "While it completes the story of the Red Tail's return to flight, it's really only the next chapter in what's sure to be an ongoing legacy."

Emmy Award-winning Red Tail Reborn, produced by White, is an emotionally driven historical documentary about the Tuskegee Airmen, the first African-American fighter pilots, who overcame segregation and challenges to fight for America in WWII, earning one of the most impressive combat records in American history. Red Tail Reborn also investigates the Red Tail Project, a group of Commemorative Air Force restorers determined to educate the world about these forgotten heroes of history.

In 2008, Red Tail Reborn won three Emmy Awards in the Lower Great Lakes Region of NATAS (National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences), in the following categories: Best Informational/Instructional Program, Best Music Composition/ Arrangement and Best Research. The film began airing nationally on PBS in February 2008 with the first month's national broadcast reaching more than 300 stations, broadcasting to over half of America's homes, and has been re-released several times since its premiere.
