70th Anniversary of the Doolittle Raid

Although the film is a bit kak, this gets covered in the film Pearl Harbor. It does show how they learnt how to get a twin engined bomber off of a carrier.

Very audacious raid, which was carried out by aircrew who knew their chances of a safe return were very limited. Yesterday was also the anniversary of the Lancaster's first major raid, on Augsburg, last night there was a memorial dinner at the Petwood Moat Hotel in Woodhall Spa. Some of the aircraft had taken off from Woodhall, the sole living survivor was present last night. The leader of this raid was awarded the Victoria Cross.
