"One of the greatest heroes of World War II is also one of the most colorful and famous James H. “Jimmy” Doolittle set many speed records and engaged in aerial acrobatics at countless air shows. He was also a test pilot and the first man ever to fly completely blind – using only cockpit instruments – from takeoff to landing. He once said, “I would never want to relive my life; I could never be so lucky again.” I thought that made a fitting title. I had dinner with the General. We discussed the pioneer days of aviation and air racing all evening and it was just delightful. It was one of the bright spots in my entire life. It was a wonderful opportunity for me to interview one of aviation’s greats. – WP
Phillips’ image shows B-25 bombers taking off from "Shangrila" for first US attack on Japanese mainland, April 1942.
Each print is hand-countersigned by Doolittle and accompanied by a complimentary copy of the General’s autobiography of the same title – where he puts into words what Phillips put into the art, and has his say about every aspect of his amazing career.
