William S. Phillips - Giant Begins to Stir
On April 18, 1942 – the 167th anniversary of Paul Revere's ride - Lt. Col. Jimmy Doolittle's B-25 leads the way to Tokyo for a bombing raid to show the world that the United States is still alive and kicking four months after Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor. The 16 B-25 Mitchells, Army medium bombers, have left the carrier Hornet, and take individual courses for Japan at 200 feet above the waves. And now Doolittle sights the enemy shoreline and veers past coastal vessels so he can hit Tokyo from its less protected northern side. The memories stirred Bill. His father had played the role of pilot Don Smith in Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo. He asked that all the raiders sign his painting, and that each surviving senior crew member sign a print - now one of the most valuable in existence.
