Saturday, April 1, 2017 10 am Museum Opens - 4 pm Closes
April 1 is the 75th Anniversary of the Doolittle Raiders leaving Alameda for Japan in 1942
IF we get FAA approval, there will be a B-25 fly-over at approximately 11:45 am.
♦ Learn about the Raiders and Jimmy Doolittle
♦ The US Fish and Wildlife will share about the conservation efforts for the endangered Least Tern bird.
♦ The Veteran’s Administration will update us on plans for new VA Hospital.
After the hopeful fly-over and updates, get some lunch, then we’ll head over to Pier 2 to re-imagine the 16 B-25s being hoisted onto the USS Hornet CV-8 that left for the secret mission to Japan on April 1, 1942.
Admission to the museum will be the normal $7 for adults and free for kids 12 and under. DONATIONS to help pay for the FLY-OVER will be appreciated. “LOOK UP – PAY A BUCK” will augment sponsor donations. We must reimburse the fuel costs which are estimated to be almost $9000.
The Crow’s Nest on 2nd floor will showcase the images from previous Doolittle presentations.
