A crew of African American pilots in the Tuskegee training program, having faced segregation while kept mostly on the ground during World War II, are called into duty under the guidance of Col. A.J. Bullard.
In preparation, George Lucas and his staff interviewed surviving Tuskegee Airmen and were given access to their original mission logbooks.
Colonel A.J. Bullard:
We have a right to fight for our country. The same as every other American.
When Cuba Gooding Jr. is using a map to explain an upcoming mission he is using his pipe to point to the map. In the next shot the pipe is suddenly in his mouth.
