Legendary unit received at least 47 Purple Hearts - STLtoday.com from http://www.stltoday.com/
So far, the newspaper has verified that 47 Tuskegee airmen received Purple Hearts. In addition, the newspaper identified 10 airmen who appear to have received the award, though that could not be verified with the same degree of certainty. The revelation more accurately reflects the contributions of a group already celebrated for its distinguished performance in battle and for breaking down racial barriers in the military. It also speaks to the nature of the airmen's service, which often put them in harm's way. Of the 450 Tuskegee pilots to serve overseas, dozens were killed in accidents or combat. "I feel better that the truth is out and that these poor guys did get awarded the Purple Heart," said Funderburk, former public relations director for the Military Order of the Purple Heart.

timesofmalta.com - Dutch F16 delights the crowd from http://www.timesofmalta.com/
A highlight of the Malta International Airshow over the weekend must have been the Dutch F16 fighter plane, flying across the sky at almost supersonic speed and leaving a thunderous rumble in its wake. With a grace and skill that defied the massive machine, and, of course, gravity, Royal Netherlands Air Force pilot Ralph Aarts pirouetted, turned 360 degrees and let off flares in an 11-minute performance that caught the full attention of the hundreds of people watching the show. Painted orange, Holland's traditional colour, the F16 was hard to miss and was one of the two highlights of the 17th edition of the air show.
