Title Returning to Majuro

Date approximately 1944 - approximately 1945
Description Approaching their airstrip on Majuro, a flight of Marine F4U Corsairs returns following a strike on one of the bypassed Japanese held islands. VMB-613 frequently escorted F4Us and SB2Cs on these strikes as single engine aircraft could easily get lost on over water flights due to the lack of adequate navigation equipment.
