A Flock of B-25s

Remember a raid 68 years ago.

B-25J "Pacific Princess" touches down at the National Museum of the United States Air Force shortly after sunrise on April 17, 2010. The ship was one of 17 that departed Urbana's Grimes Field at two minute intervals for the short flight to the field which is part of Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio. Four of the surviving members of the Doolittle Raiders met the aircraft. The weekend events coincide with the Doolittle Raider reunion being held in Dayton commemorating the 68th anniversary of the Jimmy Doolittle-led bombing mission to Tokyo, Japan launched from the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Hornet. "Pacific Princess", out of China, California, is owned by Carl Scholl and Tony Ritzman. (Mike Ullery)
