Mr Richardson,

Thanks for the post. An airplane is just a static display without fuel, lots of parts, trained pilots, trained and experienced maintenance personnel and airfields. Set any variable in the equation to zero and the plane won't be effective.

As for adapting techniques, Japanese Naval Staff Officer Masatake Okumiya also noted the US forces quickly changing practices in the Pacific theatre. What surprised me was his envy of how the US took care of morale with logistical support and search/rescue sweeps after battles.
