The man reportedly grabbed an undisclosed amount of cash from the register and fled on foot.

Its crew told audiences about the Tuskegee Airmen, the first black fighter pilots to serve in the U.S. Army Air Corps during World War II.

The Red Tail Project's Mustang crashed at the Red Wing Air Show in May 2004, killing the project's leader, Don Hinz and destroying the airplane.
