This morning USS Yorktown, recently repaired of her battle damage sustained at the Coral Sea, puts to sea from Pearl Harbor as part of Task Force 17. Fighting 3 departs Kaneohe and lands on board Yorktown. She steams northwest to catch up with Task Force 16 comprised of USS Hornet and USS Enterprise, already sailing northwest from Pearl Harbor.

Where the heck are they going?

We did it in WarBirds. Had over 300 planes in the air at once.
