The Doolittle Raid picture taken on 18 April 1942, shows Lt. Col. Cole (then 2nd Lieutenant) flying from the deck of the Aircraft Carrier U.S.S. Hornet on what would be one of the most daring raids on the empire of Japan during World War Two. The Doolittle Raid war plane photo shows he was the co-pilot of a B-25B Mitchell bomber piloted by Lt. Col. James H. "Jimmy" Doolittle, the mission leader. His plane was one of sixteen like — bombers with a mission to bomb Tokyo and other key cities in Japan that day. The Doolittle Raid military plane photo shows the attack, America's first retaliatory strike, so decisive that it would ultimately lead to the turning point of the war by provoking the Japanese counter attack and defeat at Midway in June of that same year. Black-and-white photograph is hand-signed by Cole, matted and framed with authentic B-25 skin, in wood under glass. Certificate of authenticity included.
