Benjamin Davis, USAF (the 2022 Honoree), and Brig. Gen. Charles McGee, USAF, as well as such other famous National Shrine Honorees as Col. Jacqueline Cochran, USAF (Former WASP), and Maj. Gen.

The ride will be in P-51 Red Nose, the aircraft that started the Commemorative Air Force! “Old Red Nose” has had a long and colorful history, dating back to the closing days of World War II. It was produced at the North American Aviation plant in Inglewood, California, and rolled out on 11 April 1945, and was accepted by the United States Army Air Force (USAAF) as serial number 44-73843.
Red Nose is painted with the markings of the 334th FS, 4th FG, 8th AF, the pilot was Capt. David W. Howe, January 1945. He flew with 334th FS from 22/9/43 until 30/3/45 when returned to the U.S. with 500 combat hours in two tours without an abort. The 334th Fighter Squadron was the successor to No. 71 Eagle squadron of the Royal Air Force when the 4th Fighter Group was activated on 12 September 1942. They were based at Debden Field, Essex.
In the event the CAF Airbase Georgia P-51 Red Nose is not available to the winner during the 12-month award period, the First Flight Society will provide an alternate prize of $3,500 to the winner.
The First Flight Society celebrates aviation history and achievements through programs, activities, education and the arts.
Without the First Flight Society (FFS) there would not be a Wright Brothers National Memorial in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina. The Kill Devil Hills Memorial Association, later named First Flight Society, began as a group of local businessmen who successfully petitioned the US Congress to fund and build a monument to the Wright Brothers’ 1903 achievement. Today the FFS is a partner with the National Park Service at the Wright Brothers National Memorial.
Every December 17th the FFS conducts a celebration at the Wright Brothers National Memorial. During the formal program a carefully chosen honoree is inducted into the Paul E. Garber Shrine displayed in the park’s museum. Since 1966 those the shrine has served to recognize include Charles Lindbergh, the Tuskegee Airmen, John Glenn, Katherine Johnson (Hidden Figures), and Col. Gail “the Candy Bomber” Halvorsen. This year the Honoree will be General Benjamin O. Davis, Jr, commander of the Tuskegee Airmen.
