|Death Throes at Midway ...|
A Japanese two-engine bomber goes down in flames in a hail of withering fire from U.S. warships, probably at the Battle of Midway though both the date and location are not precisely known. Note the numerous splashes from American shellfire all around the plane as she heads for the drink. Photo via the U.S. Navy Bureau of Aeronautics.
