that Tokyo was bombed by Doolittle's raiders.

I happened to be at my sister-in-law's house in Ventura, CA and flying above the city, to commemorate the event (once I thought about it), was a B25J, a F4U Corsair and an AM6-3 Zero http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

It was fantastic as they made about 6 passes using combat maneuvers. Cool to see a Corsair doing yo-yos and also a full loop.

My guess is that the AC are part of the Camarillo CAF:
