Historical Speculation - Doolittle Raid
Posted by Jim Davis on 4/1/2017, 11:55 am
As we are coming up on the 75th Anniversary of the Doolittle Raid, I thought I'd ask for a bit of speculation. If I read the specs correctly, the Saratoga and Lexington had almost 100 feet more flight deck than did the Hornet. Given that the B-25 bomb loads were limited because of the need for extra fuel while remaining light due to the short length for take off, might Sara or Lex have not been better choices from which to launch the raid?
