CAF Rise Above Exhibit

CAF Rise Above Exhibit

In celebration of Black History Month, join Wings Over the Rockies and the Commemorative Air Force to experience the history and legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen and Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) in this limited-time traveling exhibition!

The RISE ABOVE traveling exhibit is an immersive experience housed in a 53’ semi-trailer.

Because of its dynamic 160-degree panoramic screen, the film creates the feeling of being in the cockpit soaring above the clouds.

See a compelling original short RISE ABOVE film that tells the story of the Tuskegee Airmen and the obstacles they overcame to be able to serve their country during World War II. Click here to learn more about CAF RISE ABOVE.

What the Tuskegee Airmen and WASP had in common – and what made them ultimately succeed – was the ability to recognize that all of the obstacles they faced could be overcome with hard work and dedication. The timeless lessons they teach us about perseverance and courage are just as applicable today as they were in the 1940s.


CAF Rise Above is included in museum admission.

The truck is equipped with a ramp and hydraulic lift.
