Wright-Patterson, NMUSAF pay tribute to Doolittle Raid 75th anniversary
Jeff Thatcher, son of Doolittle Raider Staff Sgt. David Thatcher, gives remarks at the National Museum of the United States Air Force April 18, 2017. The memorial service, including a wreath laying, honored the 75th anniversary of the Doolittle Tokyo Raid in which 80 volunteers used 16 B-25 Mitchell bombers to strike the Japanese mainland from the USS Hornet aircraft carrier, turning the tide of World War II. The ceremony included two flyovers of B-25 bombers, one in the missing man formation, and a B-1B bomber flyover. (U.S. Air Force photo/Wesley Farnsworth)
