Brigadier General Charles McGee of Bethesda, a member of the Tuskegee Airmen, visited Kansas City, Mo. on Tuesday where the general aviation terminal was named after him.
McGee served as the Charles B. Wheeler Downtown Airport’s manager during the early 1980s. Here are some photos from the visit, courtesy of Private Air Media.
Today I paid tribute to a big man with a big heart, Brigadier General Charles McGee, one of the last living members of the trailblazing Tuskegee Airmen, with the renaming of a terminal at @FlyMKC. His service has enabled younger generations of aviators to soar. #AviationHistory pic.twitter.com/EVQHPKpeTH
