Major Gregory 'Pappy' Boyington's 'Black Sheep', the Marine Corsairs of VMF-214, taxi out for another mission from Vella Lavella, December 1943, escorting a B24 raid on the Japanese fortress at Rabaul. Action is guaranteed, and the intensity of aerial fighting here, which later saw Boyington shot down and taken prisoner, was equal to anything in the war. For their part in the prolonged battle for the South West Pacific the Black Sheep became national heroes.
