Tondern raid

This Day in History

This event repeats every year forever

Event details

This day in 1918 marked the very first aircraft carrier raid - a seven-plane attack on airship hangar in Tondern (today Tønder, Denmark). While the strike group lost all planes and one man and damage amounted only to two airships destroyed, this raid sparked plans for a torpedo plane raid on the German Hochseeflotte and was revived during WWII for the raid on Italian fleet at Taranto.
