76 years have passed since Colonel Doolittle led 16 B-25's over Tokyo on 18 April 1942. I take a few moments every year on 18 April to remember that mission and the brave airmen who took part in it.
Here's a recent view I experienced from the waist position of a B-25H over my hometown 70+ years later.

The young gentleman in the top photo is the Pilot of the Texas Flying Legends B-25 H.
