I'm doing some historical research on the 3rd Air Fleet as reconstituted, prior to the air battles around Formosa and Okinawa, 12-17 October 1944. I am trying to find or create an order of battle for the force on about 1 October. This air fleet was made up of the carrier air wings from the 3rd Fleet carriers. Can anyone steer me in the right direction?

Thanks,
Chuck

Have you examined records in JACAR?  https://www.jacar.go.jp/english/

 There is not a lot that I can spot in quick search, but there is some detailed unit info in the 3rd Air Fleet logbook for Summer 1944.
Use reference code # C08030024400 and go to p. 15, I think.
