    10 Months and 2 Days later they were sent off the deck of the USS Hornet to Tokyo, for the first successful action of American forces during WWII!

    I always heard B-25s flew off the Hornet.

    You are correct, the B-25 were twin engine bombers. These B-24's with there four engines would have been too big to take off from the Hornet.
