Sharpe Field- once home to the Tuskegee Airmen


Tuskegee, Alabama (AL), US
Sharpe Field was also known as Tuskegee AAF during the Second World War and while current Tuskegee Airmen reunions are held at Moton Field nearby, Moton only did basic flight training and all advanced/operational flight training took place here at Sharpe Field.

The last advanced pilot training class graduated in 1946 and for a while Sharpe Field remained open as a civilian airport before closing around 1970-71.
