Col. Herbert E. Carter Terminal at Moton Field 

Tuskegee, Alabama 

Currently under construction, the 3,000 sf terminal will serve daily flights at Moton Field, on the grounds of the Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site.  The facility contains waiting lobby space, pilot's lounge, and administrative space for base operations.

Lt. Colonel Herbert E. Carter was a member of the original thirty-three members of the Tuskegee Airmen, and flew over seventy missions with the Airmen during World War II.

 

His wife, Mildred was also a pilot - the first African American woman licensed in Alabama.  The Carters were known as the "First Family" of the Tuskegee Airmen.

The roof of the building is meant to suggest flight, and the entry canopy across the front entry will shade the south facade of the building.
