Yesterday's Air Force: The pilot who killed King Kong



There was only one man who took part in the hunt for Pancho Villa, the Doolittle Raid, the Flying Tigers, the Japanese surrender on the USS Missouri and even stopping King Kong’s rampage in New York City. He was one of the Air Force's most innovative, exceptional, and adventurous leaders. That man was Brigadier General Merian C. Cooper.
