... and A-O. A-O is a mystery,
maybe a diversion.

But I think we've identified ""A-F"".
It's Midway.

It had us stymied until one of my men
remembered an intercept from March.

A Jap reconnaissance pilot radioed
his base that he's close to ""A-F"".

We plotted every course
the plane could have have taken,

and the only appreciable landmass
he could have flown over was Midway.

Joe! - I know it's thin.
- Thin?. Damn near invisible!

But I figured out
a way to confirm it, Sir.

If you have this flown to Midway.
It's a fake message, Admiral,

reporting that Midway's
freshwater condenser's broken down.

It should be transmitted in the clear,
so the Japanese get every word.

Instruct Midway to include this in
their housekeeping traffic tomorrow.

Aye-aye, Sir.
Send this right away.
Hey, chief!
What's this?.
There ain't nothin' wrong
with our freshwater condenser!

Dombrowski, send it.
Damn heat's gettin' to everybody here.
