I want to eventually watch Spielberg's "Red Tail" about the US Army AirCorp (now Air Force) Tuskegee Airman. Accoring to documantaries I saw on them, US bomber crews at first, refused them to fly as fighter escorts as they were an all Black Squadron. As their kill ratios rose to the top of the US Army Aircorps fighter squadrons on other assignments, US bomber crews later insisted that they be escorted by the Tuskegee Airmen knowing they'd probably make it back alive, because they were that good.
