Product Description

Signed by General James Doolittle

One of the greatest heroes of World War II was also one of the most colorful and famous. James H. "Jimmy" Doolittle set many speed records and engaged in aerial acrobatics at countless air shows. He was also a test pilot and the first man ever to fly completely blind - using only cockpit instruments - from take-off to landing. He once said, "I would never want to relive my life; I could never be so lucky again." "I thought this was a fitting title. I had dinner with the General. We discussed the pioneer days of aviation and air racing all evening and it was just delightful. It was one of the bright spots of my entire life. It was a wonderful opportunity for me to interview one of aviations's greats."

Capt. Robert K. Morgan and his crew climb out over the English countryside and the eighth Air Force Base, Bovingdon, 9 June 1943. This time, having completed their 25th mission over enemy territory the previous month, they are heading the other way, northwest across Scotland, then across the Atlantic Ocean for the United States...and home! The aircraft and crew spent the next two months flying around the country on a War Bond promotional tour. The "Memphis Belle" became a household word and certainly one synonymous with B-17s and World War II. Saved from the smelter at the end of the war, the "Memphis Belle" was restored and put on display in the city of her namesake.

Personally autographed by pilot Robert K. "Bob" Morgan.
