With both 1,700-hp Wright Cyclone supercharged 14-cylinder radial engines roaring at full power, Larry Gregory, pilot of the lead B-25 Mitchell, Special Delivery, stands on his brakes waiting for the Navy crewman’s flag to touch the ground in an attempt for a short-field take-off during Doolittle Raiders Training Reenactment at Duke Field on Eglin Air Force Base, Fla., May 31, 2008. The three B-25s in attendance managed at best a 1,500 ft takeoff, while the actual Doolittle Raiders did it in about 500 ft on this runway and from the USS Hornet during WWII.
