Thanks. I've been so busy that I didn't even realize that today was December 7th.

Thanks 35th OVI for posting the photos from CNN. I enjoyed seeing such nice large reproductions of these classic images. However, the photo labeled "Airmen at Hickam Field watch as bombs explode." actually shows sailors at the seaplane base on the tip of Ford Island watching explosions on Battleship Row.

The photos are mostly well known, but rarely seen in such high definition.

The photo of Ford Island has it wrong. What we are seeing are torpedo planes (there are two Kates, actually, in the image) and it was torpedo strikes that created those huge water plumes, not bombs.

I tried once to reproduce that view of the Arizona sunk and afire, but never got beyond the bridge and foremast, with much brasswork added. Simply no room for a display of the entire wreck.

Great find and thanks.
