SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — Saturday, April 18th, marks the 78th anniversary of the historic ‘Doolittle Raid’ of World War II.

To help commemorate 1942 the surprise attack on Japan and South Dakota’s involvement, the South Dakota Air and Space Museum has set up a kiosk at the Sioux Falls Airport with video.
