The U.S. Naval Air Station on Ford Island, in the center of Pearl
Harbor, is scattered with wreckage at the height of the Japanese
attack on the morning of Decmber 7, 1941. Note the intact scout
planes parked at far right, and the fires rising from burning ships
along Battleship Row in the background. Dead center, coiled
in smoke, is the red and white checkered control tower.
