A new display is honoring the memory of two Tuskegee Airmen.

Busts of Tuskegee Airmen General Benjamin Davis and Kentucky-born Brigadier General Noel Parrish were unveiled on Saturday at the Aviation Museum of Kentucky.

The two were iconic Tuskegee Airmen commanders during World War II.

General Parrish was born in Versailles and was the white commander of the cadet training program at Tuskegee Institute. Parrish was inducted into the Aviation Museum of Kentucky’s Hall of Fame.

General Davis was the commander of the all black 332nd Fighter Group in Italy and later the Commander of the 477th Composite Group stationed at Godman Field, Kentucky near Louisville.

The sculptures were created by University of Kentucky Associate Art Professor Bobby Scroggins.

The Kentucky Department of Veterans Affairs sponsored the project.
