Re: Question about initial carrier sighting report of Kurita's forces, 24 October 1944

Thanks again everyone who took the time to help confirm this. I wrote a little piece about Donald L. Watts for the anniversary of this event. Watts was 5F Intrepid, "Five Fox Lucky," the VF-18 pilot whose detailed sighting report reached Halsey and kicked off the Battle of the Sibuyan Sea.
VF-18 original research and writing:
Two-a-Day 18 Blog
VF-18 photo albums
Misc. newspaper clippings
