Charles Mcgee, Tuskegee and 332 F.G. hero, dies at 102.

January 17, 2022 · in News · 7 · 1.3K

Charles Mcgee fits the title "Superhero" much better than any comic book character. I won't get long winded, just post the AP article which sums up his story OK. And his P-51B "Kitten", named for his Wife.
Once tough, always tough. Blue skies, Charles.

    Indeed a real Superhero.

  3. Very sad news, RIP Sir.

  4. I met him in 1999 when I invited him to speak at the College Park Aviation Museum. I was the curator at the time. A true gentleman and wonderful speaker. And a great American. Have a good flight West sir.

  5. Nice build and tribute!

  6. I knew you built a Tuskegee aircraft, didn't know it was his specifically. That's real cool

  7. Thanks for the tribute to the unsung heroes of America Bill.
    Great model as well.
