One of the Tuskegee Airmen got a rare chance to see himself and it was bigger than life!
91-year-old Lt. Cl. Alexander Jefferson said he was speechless when he first laid eyes on a statue of himself this morning.
Jefferson stopped by the home of sculptor Joe Rundell in Vienna Township -- who is also an accomplished engraver.
Tundell says he is one-third done with the bronze statue.
he Tuskegee Airmen is a popular name of a group of African-American pilots who fought in World War 2.
It's unclear which museum the statue will eventually end up in.
