Chart of Japanese air attack on U.S. Task Force (TF) 18 between Rennell Island and Guadalcanal on the evening of January 29, 1943. TF 18 was heading for Guadalcanal (black arrowed line, lower right). Japanese "Betty" torpedo bombers (dashed red line) departed from Rabaul (upper left), Buka (upper left), and Munda (centre) airfields and joined together for a coordinated attack. The Japanese aircraft circled around to the south of TF 18 so that they could attack from the east, with the black sky of approaching nightfall behind them.

Background taken from (which is a U.S. government public domain document) and modified by myself, cla68, on July 22, 2006 to forces battle tracks. Released under the GFDL.
