Signature of the Doolittle Raid pilot who flew in Crew #2 of the 1942 invasion
Signature: "Travis Hoover (Lt.)/Pilot B-25 #2, Tokyo/Raid Apr. 18, 1942/ Col. USAF Ret.", in black ink, 3x2. On April 18, 1942, four months after Pearl Harbor, Lt. Col. Jimmy Doolittle and 79 other fighter pilots ("Doolittle's Raiders") bombed Tokyo, the first air attack on the Japanese capital, scoring a huge victory for United States morale at a time when Japan's position in the Pacific seemed impregnable. Doolittle piloted Airplane #1. Right behind him was Lt. Travis Hoover (1917-2004) of the 37th Squadron, 17th Group, pilot of Airplane #2. Following the successful attack, Hoover continued to serve as a bomber pilot in England, North Africa and Italy from 1942 to 1944. For his years in service he earned the Silver Star, Distinguished Flying Cross, Air Medal with 9 Oak Leaf Clusters, Army Commendation Medal, and Chinese Army, Navy, and Air Corps Medal, Class A, 1st Grade. Signature lightly smudged, but fully legible. Fine condition.
