      One of the Tuskegee Airmen gets statue

      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.

      T 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.
