Photo #: 80-G-701874  Battle of Midway, June 1942
Title: Battle of Midway, June 1942
Description: Diorama by Norman Bel Geddes, depicting combat air patrol intercepting the incoming Japanese dive bomber raid on USS Yorktown (CV-5), at about noon on 4 June 1942. Most of the Japanese planes were shot down by F4F-4 fighters, but several survived to drop bombs on or near Yorktown. Markings on the F4Fs are not accurate for this time period, as the fuselage stars are too small. Official U.S. Navy Photograph, now in the collections of the National Archives.
Catalog #: 80-G-701874
