DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — The National Museum of the U.S. Air Force in southwest Ohio is highlighting aviation heroes and milestones for Black History Month.

The museum near Dayton offers a self-guided audio tour pointing out exhibits about events and figures such as the integration of the U.S. Air Force and about Eugene Jacques Bullard, the first black fighter pilot in World War I.

The museum is working on expanding its Tuskegee Airmen exhibit in the World War II Gallery.

The museum will also show "Red Tail Reborn," featuring the black airmen who joined the war effort as pilots.
