Surviving WWII Raiders in Ohio mark 70 years

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — A flyover by World War II bomber planes, Chinese visitors and a memorial ceremony with four Doolittle's Raiders helped mark the 70th anniversary of the daring U.S. air attack on Japan.

Thousands of people flocked to the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force near Dayton for the events, part of a four-day observance. The four Raiders looked up into blue skies Wednesday as 20 B-25 planes similar to the ones they used flew just before a memorial service that included the placing of a wreath at the memorial here to their mission and the playing of Taps.
