UAB art students, teachers, use painting skills to honor Alabama air crewman killed at Bay of Pigs

Several UAB art and art history students and faculty members recently took part in honoring four members of the Alabama Air National Guard who were killed during the ill-fated, CIA-backed attempt to invade Fidel Castro's Cuba at the Bay of Pigs in 1961. They painted new art on the nose of one of the planes flown by the Alabama Air National Guard's 117th Air Refueling Wing.
