History presentation by students from  the Keystone Heights Jr/Sr High School

On April 18, 1942, four months after the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, 16 U.S. Army Air Forces B-25B Mitchell medium bombers were launched from the deck of the U.S. Navy's newly-built aircraft carrier, the USS Hornet, deep in Western Pacific Ocean.

The destination was Tokyo and other Japanese home islands. Planned and led by Lt.Col. Jimmy Doolittle with all-volunteer air crews, the air raid boosted morale among Americans and allies abroad, but delivered a tremendous blow to Japanese morale and demonstrated Japan's vulnerability to air attack.  

To commemorate the Doolittle Raid, history students from the Keystone Heights Jr/Sr High School will make a presentation about this notable day in American history.

At the 2014 Sun 'n Fun's "Dinner with Legends," Wings of Dreams co-founder/managing director Susan King was honored to meet  Lt.Col. (ret.)Dick Cole, who served as Jimmy Doolittle's
co-pilot on the Doolittle Raid.
