The Pacific Campaign


On 9th September 1942 the first bombing from the air of mainland America by a foreign power occurred when an attempt to start a forest fire was made by a Japanese Yokosuka E14Y1 seaplane dropping 170lb incendiary bombs over Mount Emily, near Brookings Oregon. The seaplane had been launched from the Japanese submarine aircraft carrier I-25. No significant damage was reported following the attack, nor following a repeat attempt made three weeks later on 29th September.
