DOGFIGHT OVER TOKYO: The Final Air Battle of the Pacific and the Last Four Men to Die in World War II
When Billy Hobbs and his fellow Hellcat aviators from Air Group 88 lifted off from the venerable Navy carrier USS Yorktown early on the morning of August 15, 1945, they had no idea they were about to carry out the final air mission of WWII. Four American pilots never returned, men who had lifted off from the carrier in wartime but were shot down during peacetime. 16 pages of photos.
