On This Day in American History
On Sept. 9, 1942, a Japanese plane drops incendiary bombs on an Oregon forest, near the town of Brookings, in the first air attack on the continental United States. The floatplane, piloted by Nobuo Fujita, was launched from a submarine, and the goal of the mission was to start massive forest fires. While there was very little damage done by the bombing President Franklin D. Roosevelt called for a news blackout of the event ostensibly to protect morale. Fujita attempted another attack later in the month, but it’s not clear if the bombs detonated. His attacks are the only cases of an aerial attack on the continental U.S. Fujita later returned to Japan where he trained navy pilots. In 1962, he was invited to Brookings where he was warmly received.

                     "1942 Japanese bomb U.S. mainland-HISTORY"
On this day in 1942, a Japanese floatplane drops incendiary bombs on an Oregon state forest—the first and only air attack on the U.S. mainland in the war.

Launching from the Japanese sub I-25, Nobuo Fujita piloted his light aircraft over the state of Oregon and firebombed Mount Emily, alighting a state forest—and ensuring his place in the history books as the only man to ever bomb the continental United States. The president immediately called for a news blackout for the sake of morale. No long-term damage was done, and Fujita eventually went home to train navy pilots for the rest of the war.
