Overview
 
Doolittle Raid Signed, Matted B-25 "Skin." On April 18, 1942, Lt. Col. Richard (Dick) Cole, co-pilot of James "Jimmy" Doolittle, took off from the deck of the Aircraft Carrier U.S.S. Hornet on one of the most daring raids on the Empire of Japan during World War II. His plane
was one of sixteen bombers with a mission to bomb Tokyo and other key cities in the Japanese home islands that day. This attack, America's first retaliatory strike after Pearl Harbor, would be so decisive that it would ultimately lead to the turning point of the war by provoking the Japanese counter attack and defeat at Midway in June of that same year. The photograph is personally signed by co-pilot Richard (Dick) Cole and is matted to include a piece of B-25 "skin." Certificate of Authenticity included.
