The Tuskegee Airmen of the Northwest Poster was designed by David Elfalan of Elfalan IT Consulting. The poster has a 21st century twist to it. The printed Qr Code allows users to scan the poster with a mobile device or smartphone triggering a multimedia presentation featuring the bios and words of some of the Airmen depicted in the poster. You can view the presentation below.
50% of all sales of the poster went towards The Tuskegee Airmen Incorporated Sam Bruce Chapter’s Scholarship fund. Unsigned Posters are valued at $25.00 each
Almost all of the unsigned Posters have been sold out, however, We have a very limited number of the signed edition. Signed by four of the Airmen in 2012 (all the remaining local original Tuskegee Airmen have since passed on).
These signed posters are now valued at $300.00 each and only a few will be released this year. A poster signed by four of the featured Airmen is now a part of The Tuskegee Airmen Archive in CA. and will be stored in the historical vaults at the University Of California in Riverside, guaranteed to be preserved for at least the next 100 years.
