B-17's fly past Italian ocean liner "Rex" 1938 B-17's fly past Italian ocean liner "Rex" 1938
 Col. Robert Olds, commander of the 2nd Bomb Group, developed a "training mission" in which a flight of B-17s (the Y1B-17 was redesignated B-17 when assigned to the 2nd Bomb Group) would intercept a ship at sea to demonstrate the long-range bomber's capabilities.  Three Boeing B-17s took off from Langley Field under the command of Maj. Caleb Hayes with Lt. Curtis LeMay was lead navigator for the flight and charged with finding the liner, which was about 800 miles east of New York City and successfully intercepted the "Rex" after a four-hour flight.  The B-17s made several passes over the ship to allow for still and motion picture photography. The U.S. Navy protested that the flight was not coastal defense, but the U.S. Army made the most of the flight and heavily publicized it in news reels and newspaper stories, May 12, 1938. This photo is from the National Archives and is in the public domain.

 North American B-25B Mitchell Bomber taking off from the USS Hornet, en-route to Toyko for the first U.S. Bombing mission to Japan, "Doolittle Raid." 24 operational B-25B medium bombers were detached from the 17th Bomb Group on April 18, 1942.   The "Doolittle Raid," was the first air raid by the United States to strike the Japanese home island of Honshū during World War II. The mission was notable since it was the only time in U.S. military history that United States Army Air Forces bombers were launched from a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier on a combat mission. The Doolittle Raid demonstrated that the Japanese home islands were vulnerable to Allied air attack, and it provided an expedient means for U.S. retaliation for Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor on 7 December 1941.
