Strategic Air and Space Museum
On Saturday, May 12th 2001 The Doolittle Tokyo Raiders exhibit was dedicated and put on permanent display at the Strategic Air and Space Museum located between Lincoln and Omaha Nebraska just off Interstate 80.
The exhibit includes the story of the Raiders as told through the words of my father, who's first hand account is shared along side timelines and artifacts that help explain this historic first bombing of mainland Japan by Allied Forces. There is a restored B-25 bomber on display and also some interactive displays as well.
Not only is the Doolittle Raider exhibit a outstanding exhibit but, there are a number of other excellent exhibits and airplanes to enjoy. If you have never been here, you should certainly be sure to visit the museum in the future. It is one of the largest Air and Space museums in the world and well worth the visit.
