Bomber Flyover to Commemorate WWII Doolittle Raid

USS Hornet Museum

The USS Hornet Museum is a ship named after the prior USS Hornet which supported the Doolittle raid on Tokyo in WWII. (File photo.)

This Saturday, in conjunction with the Alameda Naval Air Museum, a restored WWII-era B-25 bomber will do a low-level flyover at Alameda Point, to commemorate the retaliatory Doolittle raid on Tokyo in April, 1942.

On April 1, 1942, sixteen B-25 bombers were loaded onto the USS Hornet CV-8, the namesake for the current “Hornet” docked at Alameda Point, bound for a raid on Tokyo in response to the attack on Pearl Harbor the previous December.

This April marks the 75th anniversary of that raid.

Between 11:30 a.m. and noon this Saturday, the restored B-25 will do three circuits around the former Naval Air Station Alameda airfield at a 500 foot elevation.

Visiting the museum, near Seaplane Lagoon, on Saturday will cost $10. Viewing the flyover is free, but the museum is suggesting participants make donations to cover the cost of bringing the aircraft up from southern California.
