On the morning of December 7, 1941, Japan launched a surprise attack on the U.S. Navy base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Shortly After the attack the U.S. military began devising a plan to strike back and on April 18, 1942, in what became known as the “Doolittle Raid”, sixteen B-25 Mitchell bombers, led by Lt. Col. James “Jimmy” Doolittle, were flown off the aircraft carrier USS Hornet near Japan, bombed Tokyo and then continued on to China. Low on fuel, fifteen of the bombers subsequently crash landed en-route to recovery fields in eastern China while one landed intact in Siberia where its crew was interned and the B-25 confiscated. Of the 80 aircrew, 69 survived their historic mission and eventually made it back to American lines.

The B-25 Mitchell was a twin-engine medium bomber manufactured by North American Aviation and used by the United States and Allied air forces during World War II. It was named in honor of General Billy Mitchell, a pioneer of U.S. military aviation. First flown on August 19, 1940, the B-25 entered operational service in 1941. Nearly 10,000 B-25s were built in numerous variants.
