Carrier Trials for P-51s and B-25s, 1943/44

I recall reading of the US Navy carrying out trials, in 1943-44, of P-51s (complete with tailhooks) and B-25s operating from aircraft carriers.

Can anyone identify some source material on these activities and what they Navy was looking to achieve?

Thanks,
David Isby
