Engineers and designers at Ford have created a special-edition Mustang to celebrate the Red Tails, the black Tuskegee Airmen who flew P-51 Mustangs and bombers in World War II.

To be shown at the EAA AirVenture in Wisconsin, the Red Tails Mustang VIN 00051 will be auctioned during the Gathering of Eagles to support the Young Eagles, a program that gives youth a chance to experience general aviation flying.

Starting with a Mustang GT, the exterior is done over with a non-production aluminum-look paint finish, red and yellow trim, a Boss grille and rear spoiler, Roush rockers, a GT500 rear diffuser, 20-inch Forgiato wheels and more.

And under the hood, a 2.3-liter Whipple supercharger makes the car a bit more of a high flyer…
