“We only spent thirty seconds over Tokyo,” remarked Ted Lawson, who was on one of sixteen B-25s on April 18, 1942. Their mission - drop bombs on Tokyo Bay. Known as the Doolittle Raiders, named after Lieutenant Colonel James H. Doolittle, the group of B-25s got so close to the ground to hit their targets that some members of the crew recalled seeing expressions on the Japanese’s faces. By the end of the mission, the bombers had begun to run out of the much-needed fuel to get them home, resulting in “Ruptured Duck”, the B-25 that Lawson was on, crash-landing on the coast of China. Signed by four crew members and Artist, Craig Kodera, this masterpiece is perfect for any WWII enthusiast.
