Doolittle Walk on Tap


The Alameda Naval Air Museum is commemorating the 74th anniversary of the Doolittle Raiders with a history walk, lecture and lunch on Saturday, April 2.

The event is open to the public. It will kick off at 10 a.m. and finish by about 2 p.m. Visitors will begin with registration at 10 a.m. At 11 a.m. they will depart for the runways, via caravan or bike, where they will be updated on the Veteran’s Administration plans for a VA Hospital and Columbarium and learn about the endangered Least Terns that nest on the old runways.

At noon, eventgoers will take a quick break for lunch, and shortly after will listen in on a question-and-answer session with historian Marshall Davis on the Raiders, Jimmy Doolittle and his interview with David Thatcher, one of two surviving Raiders. 

The event is $20 per person and just $10 for museum members. The Alameda Naval Air Museum is located at 2151 Ferry Point. For more information, call 522-4262 or email
