Lucas film, 'Red Tails' screened in Alaska with Tuskegee connection

On Dec. 15, a rough cut of George Lucas' flick, Red Tails, was screened for about 200 Alaskans associated with the U.S. Air Force Reserve's 477th Fighter Squadron. That's the outfit that flies the F-22 Raptors based at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson. So what's the connection? Well, the way the military looks at things, the personnel with the Raptor unit are the grandkids of the Tuskegee Airmen.
