This metal airplane sign is a tribute to the first black military aviators, the Tuskegee Airmen. The Tuskegee Airmen flew over 15,000 sorties in Europe and Northern Africa. They formed the 332 Expeditionary Operations Group and the 477 Bombardment Squadron.
From the award winning aviation artist, Stan Stokes, the image of the Tuskegee Airmen is handsomely displayed on heavy gauge steel sign that is made in America. There are several steps to produce the exceptionally detailed airplane sign. The process begins with a powder coating applied to the steel plate that is baked. This gives the sign its vibrant colors and then a satin finish provides a smooth and sturdy surface. Finally rivets are drilled into the metal to make the sign easy to hang.
