Week Five: GEN Jimmy Doolittle US Army Air Corps Pilot in the ’20s In 1929 made the first completely blind take-off and landing proving the practicality of instrument flight. Was unique in aviation with a doctorate degree in aeronautics from MIT His piloting feats eclipsed his scientific work. Ten years earlier he won the Thompson Air Trophy flying the highly-advanced Gee Bee Racer, one of the few pilots in the thirties to have raced these planes and survived. In 1942, he organized and led the raid on Tokyo made famous by the book and movie, Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo .
