The Airpower Legacy Series was developed by the Air Force Academy athletic department to promote and celebrate the history of the Air Force's aircraft. The series began in 2016 with the football team wearing a special “Legacy Series Sharktooth” featuring tiger shark teeth nose-art, which has been represented on multiple Air Force aircraft dating back to World War II. During the WWII era, fight plane pilots were called "Flying Tigers" and were part of the U.S. Army Air Corps, which later became the United States Air Force.
