47th Pursuit Squadron

The 47th Pursuit Squadron was temporarily based at Haleiwa Field although the pilots took their rest and recreation at Wheeler Field. On 7 December they had to return quickly in order to get airborne. The 47th provided the only really effective airborne resistance to the Japanese that day.
