2Lt Alva Temple flew this standard-coloured P-40 nicknamed "Nona II" in late 1943. The Red Tails acquired their red tails and name during the second half of 1944, when the colours were introduced to facilitate recognition during bomber escort missions.
Temple completed 120 missions during World War II, he served in Italy, southern France and the Balkan nations. Temple trained at Tuskegee, Alabama., as part of a program set up by the Pentagon during the war. The entirely segregated training was rigorous; 992 men graduated as Tuskegee Airmen. The black pilots were credited with shooting down more than 100 enemy aircraft and never losing an American bomber to enemy fighters. About 150 lost their lives in training or combat flights.
