    Effects of a hit by a single aircraft and its bomb on the destroyer USS Douglas H. Fox (DD-779), while stationed at RP 9, on 17 May 1945. The bomb entered mount 52 near the back edge of its top plate and continued on, ripping out the rear bulkhead of the gun house before detonating against the main deck. The aircraft itself hit the front face of mount 51, demolishing the gun house. Photo National Archives and Records Administration.

    Flight OPS aboard USS Midway circa 1973-74. These photos are from the 1974 USS Midway cruise book. Someone in Germany has slapped his water mark all across these OFFICIAL USN photos. He's null and void as far as I'm concerned. ALL USN photos are for public use as long as they are not classified.
