Twentieth Century Fox Studios donated 6
replica Japanese aircraft used to film the move Tora, Tora,
Tora to the Commemorative Air Force in 1972. The CAF
performed their first air show with these aircraft on June
25 of the same year. They perform a mock attack similar to
that done of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. The crews of
the team's motto is "Lest we forget" and they are all
volunteers, which is testimony to their dedication and
commitment to preserving the history of WWII and honoring
all those who serve.
