In the early morning,  24. Sept. 1944, 05:50 am,  the TF 38 took off on a flight, a  target area 350 miles (!) away from there Aircraft  carriers . A total of 120 aircraft's, F6F HELLCAT fighters and SB2C HELL DIVER bombers been on there way  to CORON BAY. This was at this time the longest air raid in history

At 9.00 am the Planes reached Coron, found 15-18 large enemy ships anchored in CORON BAY. Only 45 Minutes later they left CORON BAY, leaving behind a hell of burning oil, manganese and exploding,  sinking ships.
