Moton Field

Moton Field in Tuskegee, central Macon County, was the flight training center for African American Army Air Corps pilots during World War II. The facility was built between 1940-42 and named for Tuskegee Institute's second president, Robert R. Moton. A museum honoring the Tuskegee Airmen legacy opened at the site in 2011.
