2/12/2018 Group Watch: Italy in Tuskegee

Italy gave the Tuskegee Airmen a home. Now, an Italian corporation hopes to make its home in Alabama for what could be a transformational project. Italian ambassador Armando Varricchio visited Moton Field in Tuskegee last week, touring the training home of the celebrated World War II fighter pilots. Along with the ambassador was William Lynn III, CEO of Leonardo DRS, the North American arm of the Italian aeronautics and defense contractor. The company plans to build the T-100 trainer jet for the U.S. Air Force at Tuskegee if the contract is awarded. That decision by the U.S. Force is expected this summer.
