  • P-38 Lightnings of the 347th FG, led by Maj. John Mitchell skim the waves as they approach the island of Bougainville, and the planned interception of Admiral Yamamoto's transport plane. After a grueling 415 mile flight at an altitude of just fifty feet, the P-38 pilots were, almost miraculously, successful in the intercepting and downing Yamamoto's aircraft.

    Signed by four of the Yamamoto mission's lead pilots.
