Diary of Louise Fillmore Blancaflor

November 24, 1944

Many planes flew over today. At 11:00 a.m. a heavy drone was heard and on looking out we saw 50 American planes flying towards Negros. Some came close to Iloilo and we expected a raid. The Japanese guard gave the warning and left his post to seek cover. A few minutes later we saw one lone Japanese plane flying very low towards the air field. It did not land – only flew around, no doubt trying to escape from the American planes.
