Thanks to a little digging by CHUD, we are getting our first look at RED TAILS via a German camera and gear rental company called FGV Schmidle.

RED TAILS (which refers to the designs on the airplanes) tells of the Tuskegee Airmen, the first ever African-American piloted combat squadron which took flight in World War II. The film is George Lucas' first to help pen since 1994's RADIOLAND MURDERS. First non-STAR WARS, non-INDIANA JONES related that is, of course.

Lucas, who has a story credit as well as a producing one, began developing TAILS all the way back in 1989 around the time INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE was released. John Ridley (THREE KINGS) wrote the script with Anthony Hemingway (The Wire) directing. The film, starring Terrence Howard and Cuba Gooding Jr., is set for release sometime this year.

Check out the stills after the jump!

I must say it is nice to see that ol' Georgie boy still uses real sets and real planes. Check out more photos from the set of RED TAILS HERE and HERE.
