Introducing BRAVO: A hackathon series for Air Force, industry

Project B proved bombers beat battleships and kickstarted a century of airpower innovation. Although the exercises validated Army Brig. Gen. Billy Mitchell’s claim that bombers sink battleships, he was never promoted to a role to lead the change. In 1925, he provided a lengthy statement, summarized as: "All aviation policies, schemes, and systems are dictated by non-flying officers of the Army or Navy who know practically nothing about it." He was consequently court martialed.” (Courtesy photo)
