Battle of Midway, June 1942
USS Yorktown (CV-5) sinking, just after dawn on 7 June 1942, as seen from an accompanying destroyer.
The ship has capsized to port and is settling rapidly by the stern.
This view looks over the ship's upper starboard structure, with her forefoot and front edge of the flight deck in the center. A .50 caliber machine gun tub is on the front corner of the flight deck, with the ship's bow and its 20mm gun tub visible beyond the flight deck's front.
