There's a lot more to setting up for a mission than a person would think

Radio Check, Testing, One, Two, Three, How do I read, Over!  This is another important part of the ability to win a war.  The radios on the aircraft must work and be checked over and over to ensure that they do work.  The P-47 Thunderbolt is one of the more modern aircraft with the latest radio systems in WW2.  The 34th Fighter Squadron was located on the island of Ie Shima just north west of Okinawa and was previously occupied by the Japanese.  This island was a very important location because it was very close to Japan and allowed the P-47 Thunderbolt's  to fly cover to the B-29's.
