35 min

fused a quarter second nose and tail.

Altitude of attack, 12,000 feet.

Planes of 314th wing

will carry capacity fuel loads

of approximately

7,300 gallons per plane.

Calibrated airspeed of 210mph will be

flown by all aircraft on bombing run.

Radar landfall 34 50' north and 01 40

east will be the same for all planes

to afford a good

land-water contrast checkpoint.

The Navy has requested to furnish

the following facilities

for air-sea rescue purposes-

three surface vessels

to proceed to positions X,

four submarines assigned

to lifeguard duties at positions Y,

two Dumbos to orbit at station Z,

four B-29s will orbit as super Dumbos

at the following positions.

The plan is double-checked.

To supervise

certain aspects of planning,

Lieutenant Colonel Caton,

a former lead crew pilot,

was brought over to staff

as project officer.

This officer's extensive

combat experience

helps to iron out operational kinks.

He will accompany this mission

to observe new smoke signals

at assembly point.

A field order is

now dispatched to the wings.

Takeoff time is flashed to the controller,

who coordinates the vast network

of communications

gathered here at the heart

and nerve center of command.

Here in the control room

status panels and a mission board

are maintained

to show at a glance the up-to-the-minute

details of all daily operations.

Prior to takeoff,

each mission is set up on the board

to afford a visual progress of the flight.

From takeoff to target and return.

Colored yarns, one for each wing,

are laid out to indicate the flight lines,

which pass close to Iwo Jima,

the halfway point.

And proceed as specified

in the field order to the proper target.

Other symbols are used to mark

air-sea rescue positions.

A timetable of statistics for each wing,
