    They all look the same to this simple soul if there's not a twirly bit at the front!

    The long toll of the brave
    Is not lost in darkness
    Over the fruitful earth
    And athwart the seas
    Hath passed the light of noble deeds
    Unquenchable forever.

      Minor technical issue here. The video you refer to mentions Hellcats, not Wildcats. Both types could have been encountered at Iwo Jima and other near by islands as the Wildcat was used on some CVLs and many CVEs, but usually it was the Hellcat squadrons out looking for Zeros to kill.
      My mistake. your right, hellcats. I always liked the F4F's...........

        I do too. They held their own in Solomon's and early PTO and many an Ace got that status flying one, shooting down Zeros(and other fighters) flown by better pilots than the IJN fielded in 1944-45.
