I think the Doolittle Raid is my favorite "action" in the Pacific. I remember reading a book many years ago as a youth all about it, and ever since I've had a soft spot for the operation.

It was a very bold decision executed by very brave men.It seems to have rattled the Japanese High Command.

Yep, my hats off to their bravery, ingenuity, and self-sacrifice.

Film of the B-25s launching still gives me the chills.

When that first bomber takes off and disappears below the deck of the ship, got me. Then seeing it rise up gaining altitude. Gripping!!

these b-25s were stripped of all unnecessary equipment
what was the weight of these aircrafts launching from carrier deck

IIRC, they replaced the ventral turret guns with broomsticks to scare off any presumptive attackers from that quarter.
