Air Force to wear special uniforms.

Not only is Air Force playing actually playing college football vs. Navy, and maybe Army, the Falcons are wearing a one-off special uniform. The Falcons will be honoring the Tuskegee Airmen with a one of a kind uniform.

The Tuskegee Airmen were a group of African-American pilots from the U.S. Army Air Corps, commissioned by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in September 1940. The pilots began their training at Morton Field in Tuskegee, Alabama. More than 900 pilots graduated from the program and more than 350 served in active duty as fighter pilots.

The first African-American officer to solo an Army Air Corps aircraft was Benjamin O. Davis, Jr., who became the commander of the 99th Pursuit Squadron, the first all-African American air unit. The Air Force Academy airfield was re-named in his honor in November 2019 and is now the Davis Airfield.

These uniforms are amazing and go check out the full gallery to see more photos of these glorious unis.

The details the school put in place are impeccable with details of the Tuskegee Airmen and their history.

The Falcons have always had a number of amazing and top-notch alternate uniforms that would rival any schools attempt at a one-off uniform and these fall in line of being amazing.

Also, Air Force is allowing people to purchase game-worn uniforms from this Navy game, and all of the proceeds will go toward cadet-athletes.
