Retired Lt Cole was Lt Col Doolittle’s co-pilot in the lead plane.
The raid, which included 16 B-25 bombers and 80 crew members, helped boost morale after Pearl Harbor.
“There’s another hole in our formation”, Air Force chief of staff General David L Goldfein said in a statement on Tuesday.
“The Legacy of the Doolittle Raiders – his legacy – will live forever in the hearts and minds of Airmen,” he continued.
