with (Australian?) commentary, the celebrated mission of the P-47s taking off from the two "Jeep Carriers" can be seen - additional footage to that of the video linked in the previous post.
From 26:25 onward "Jugs" of the 318th Fighter Wing, USAAF can be seen assembling at Bellows Field Oahu, loading onto the CVEs at PH, catapulting off, and also operations from the newly-captured fields on Saipan. Of interest is arming of the planes with rockets, 50-cal ammo, and in particular, napalm (the first planes to use it in combat? - really?)
