See 17 B-25Js Fly for the Doolittle Raider Reunion

Click the image above to view Terri’s video of her flight with  B-25J ‘Pacific Princess’ of Chino, CA, and 16 other B-25Js in tribute to the last surviving Doolittle Raiders, on April 15-18, at the Air Force Museum, Wright Patterson Field, Dayton, Ohio.   The Doolittle Raiders were a group of B-25 pilots and crew who flew B-25Js from the USS Carrier ‘Hornet’ in April, 1942  to attack Tokyo, Japan, along with several other industrial targets on the Japanese mainland, and  deliver a tremendous morale booster to Americans during a dark time of WWII.   Today there are only 8 Doolittle Raider crewmembers left alive from that historic raid, and three braved bitter cold weather in Ohio to thank the crews of these B-25s for their rememberance of this historic flight.

Terri  Polley, of VictoryGirl participated as video crew member for the trip from Chino, to Ohio and back, and even earned her ‘Combat Camera’ patch from the Air Force photographers there!  If you have issues getting to the video, do a search on YouTube for ‘Victorygirl, B-25J Pacific Princess’.
