Some legendary men who could be described as the Jackie Robinsons of the military are being honored this week with a traveling exhibit.
A portable museum honoring the Tuskeegee Airmen arrived earlier this week at Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport.
The Airmen were African American pilots who excelled in times of a deeply segregated military during World War II.
The museum on wheels is contained in a 53 foot long tractor trailer. The traveling exhibit will be near Horizon Aviation at the airport through Saturday.
Public hours are: Wednesday, 2:30 to 5 p.m.; Thursday and Friday, 3 to 5 p.m.; and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
