Pearl Harbor Hawaii USA Date:1941, December 7 Duration:1 min 3 sec Sound:NO SOUND
Aftermath of Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii during World War II. Approximately one week after the December 7, 1941 attack, this is a view of a Japanese crewmember from his torpedo bomber floating face down in the water. He was the radioman (gunner) on the aircraft which was downed in Southeast Loch by antiaircraft fire: Nito Hiko Heiso (Petty Officer Second Class) Yoshiharu Machimoto. Prior to this opening image, a U.S. diver had cut the harness from Machimoto in the still submerged aircraft, and his body had risen to the surface, losing his boots in the process. The mangled wreckage of the recovered Japanese torpedo bomber, a Nakajima B5N2 "Kate" (AII-356 serial 3178) from the Japanese aircraft carrier Kaga, is seen hoisted on a crane, dangling in the air.
