Doolittle’s Co-Pilot on the Tokyo Raid

On 18 April 1942, Lt. Col. Richard E. Cole (then 2nd Lieutenant) flew from the deck of the aircraft carrier Hornet on what would be one of the most daring raids on the empire of Japan during WWII. He was the co-pilot of the B-25B Mitchell bomber piloted by Lt. Col. James H. “Jimmy” Doolittle, the mission leader. His aircraft was one of sixteen bombers with a mission to bomb Tokyo and other key targets. This attack, America’s first retaliatory strike after Pearl Harbor, would ultimately lead to the turning point of the war in the Pacific by provoking the Japanese counter-attack and subsequent defeat at the Battle of Midway in June of that same year. This 8"h x 10"w photo of several B-25 Mitchells on the U.S.S. Hornet on the Tokyo Raid has been personally signed by Jimmy Doolittle’s co-pilot the late Richard E. Cole and has been matted in a handsome wooden frame. Includes a Certificate of Authenticity. Measures 13"h x 16"w framed.

Great artwork for those that get excited about our History in WWII !!!
Thank you!! What a really great piece for my library.

The background:
As a young pilot at Marine Military Academy, I read the book 30 Seconds Over Tokyo four or five times. It really kickstarted my flying career. It has quite a bit of personal value and when I saw this piece, I had to have it.

Great quality. Please offer more like this so I can add to my aviation/military art collection!

Own a piece of history
The only thing that would make this better is if the piece of the B-25 was actually from serial #40-4344, the aircraft which Doolittle and Cole flew on the mission.
