Interview with National Museum of the USAF Historain Dr. Doug Lantry in regard to the Doolittle Raid. In January 1942, Gen. Henry "Hap" Arnold selected Lt. Col. James Doolittle to lead Special Aviation Project No. 1, the bombing of Japan. Doolittle, who enlisted in the Army in 1917, became a flying cadet and received his commission in 1918. Although the Doolittle Raid of April 18, 1942, caused only minor damage, it forced the Japanese to recall combat forces for home defense, raised fears among the Japanese civilians, and boosted morale among Americans and our Allies abroad. #DoolittleRaid #WWII #AirHistory #Avgeek
The North American B-25B Mitchell is the aircraft of the day! The airplane on display, actually a RB-25D (S/N 43-3374), was removed from storage at Tucson, Ariz., and rebuilt by North American Aviation at Inglewood, Calif., to the configuration of the lead B-25B flown by Lt. Col. Doolittle on the Tokyo Raid. It was then flown to the museum, arriving in April 1958. Info here: #avgeek #airhistory" target="_blank">http://bit.ly/2Pi5F3M #avgeek #airhistory</a>
