Luther Smith, a member of the famed Tuskegee Airmen, died this week at age 89. The Tuskegee Airmen, the first black pilots in the Air Force, flew hundreds of missions in World War II but never lost a bomber. "You know, in 1941 nobody wanted the Tuskegee Airmen," Smith, who flew 133 combat missions, said in a previous interview. "In 1945, only the Nazis didn't want us."
