    In February 1944 American troops on Bougainville captured a Japanese map which showed the site of the future American surrender ceremony.

    Anyone know if the Japanese had gone this far in their plans, really?

    Can't say I've heard of that before, but it wouldn't surprise me. The link is dead, but I looked it up on the Wayback Machine. It wasn't very helpful as it only had what you put in the original post. Maybe one of our Marine experts here has a copy of the History of Marine Corps Aviation in WWII and will look it up on page 208.
