They flew 4 times in one day - the longest flight lasting 59 seconds and a little over 852 feet.

An invasion on mainland Japan had been planned but President Truman ordered the bombs dropped instead.

The attackers crept into the Olympic Village and abducted the athletes while they were sleeping. A German policeman was also killed.
