The Doolittle Raid was a hastily planned retaliation by the U.S. after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Lt. Col. Doolittle, a famous test pilot & engineer was assigned to plan the raid which included 16 highly modified B-25 bombers manned by exceptional aircrews. The B-25 had to be able to launch from an aircraft carrier with a 2,000 lbs payload & cruise at twice its normal range. On 4/18/42 the raid launched without any guarantees or escorts. All 16 planes were able to deliver their payload and jettison with only two crews captured. Doolittle believed that he would face a court-martial for the losses, but he instead received the Medal of Honor and was promoted to brigadier general.
