Black aviator honored for breaking barriers

During Black History Month, Lambert St. Louis International Airport re-dedicated its "Blacks in Flight" mural, which pays homage to African-Americans in aviation. One face that stands out in the mural is Capt. Christopher Newman, one of the original Tuskegee Airmen. Tuskegee Airmen were the first black air combat squadrons that flew during World War II.

Watch and listen as Newman describes his inspiration for becoming an aviator and his experience flying the "red tail" P-51 Mustang.
