Flying their P-38's at sea level with only the aid of their airspeed indicator, wrist watch and borrowed navy compass, Col. John Mitchell and his men of the 339th Fighter Squadron return victorious after shooting down the head of the Japanese Combined Fleet,
Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto.
Much controversy still surrounds this famous mission to this day, regarding who actually made the kill on that 18th day of April, 1943.
