Pearl Harbor Attack, 7 December 1941
Two Japanese Navy planes circle a burning aircraft just north of Ewa Beach, Oahu, during the raid. The crashed plane is probably a USS Enterprise (CV-6) SBD flown by Ensign John Vogt or Lieutenant Clarence Dickinson. A Japanese plane crashed in the same location, with its wreckage intermingled with that of the U.S. Navy aircraft.
Photographed by Staff Sergeant Lee Embree from a U.S. Army 38th Reconnaissance Squadron B-17E that arrived over Oahu during the Japanese attack.
