A diverse Air Force

Capt. Cedric Parker, 36th Airlift Squadron pilot, inspects cargo on a C-130J Super Hercules, Feb. 6, 2023, at Yokota Air Base, Japan. Black men and women who were interested in becoming pilots during the 1920s and 1930s faced barriers that white men and women did not. Early Black pilots created their own flight schools and clubs to train others or often had to earn their license in Europe. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Brooklyn Golightly)
