    #USArmy ..... ‪#‎ArmyHistory‬ Today in 1929, James H. "Jimmy" Doolittle made aviation history by being the first pilot to take off, fly and land an airplane “blind” using only instruments to navigate the plane. This paved the way for his later exploits as an Army Air Force officer, including the planning and execution of the first aerial raid to hit the Japanese home islands. http://www.af.mil/AboutUs/Biographies/Display/tabid/225/Article/107225/general-james-harold-doolittle.aspx
