All proceeds from the unique mustang will go to support the EAA’s Young Eagles. This program provides free introductory flight courses for youth in the United States.

The auctioning of this specially-designed iconic muscle car marks the fifth year Ford has donated to the event.

Prior to this time, African Americans were banned from flying for the United States military. The 2013 Mustang’s paint job features a red detailing on the back of the car. This represents the notably red tails of the airplanes flown by the Tuskegee Airmen.
