Famed WWII aviators hold final reunion

Lt. Col. Dick Cole, 97, flies a B-25 in the skies over Destin, Fla. on Tuesday as part of the Doolittle Raider 71st Anniversary Reunion. The Doolittle Tokyo Raid was a notable attack on the Japanese during World War II using B-25's. The B-25 pilots trained to take off from an aircraft carrier, which the plane was not designed to do.
