Magnificent collection of Warbirds. Impressive restoration projects. Nice atmosphere. Came to see the PoF museum which is next door but never knew that the Yanks...

James H. “Jimmy” Doolittle

In 1922, while Doolittle (1896-1993) was serving as the U.S. Army Air Corps' chief of experimental flying, he became the first pilot to fly across the United States in less than 24 hours.

On Sept. 24, 1929, he made the world's first totally blind flight.

On April 18, 1942, flying a B-25 Mitchell bomber, Doolittle led the first U.S. air attack on Japan, the Tokyo Raid, in World War II.

In 1942, Brigadier General Doolittle led U.S. aviators into North Africa.

He was promoted to lieutenant general in 1944 and commanded the Eighth Air Force between 1944 and 1946. 

Colleagues of the founders of Yanks, Joe and Jimmy Doolittle were some of our most famous friends. 

The James H. Doolittle Memorial Statue is on display under the wing of the B-25 Mitchell.
