Response to Re: Escort Carrier off Samar
Did the USAAF P-47s takeoff using the carrier catapult? I thought that would require a hook on the planes, which AAF planes would not have. I think the B-25s of the Doolittle Raid took off without catapult assist, as I read that they practised on an airfield using a strip marked to the length of the carrier deck.
