Operation Hailstone US Navy Attacks Truk Island Naval Action Aerial Combat Footage WW2 w/ Sound



Operation Hailstone US Navy planes raid Japanese at Truk Lagoon / Island. Newsreel video with sound of World War 2 naval air attack by F6F Hellcat, TBF Avenger, and SBD Dauntless carrier based aircraft on Truk (aka: Chuuk) Lagoon on February 16 & 17, 1944. This attack has often been referred to as the Japanese Pearl Harbor. A lot of great gun camera footage to go along with the action from the Navy cameramen aboard some of the planes.
