Close Call

Close call for USS Hornet (CV-12) as a Kamikaze just misses the ship off Okinawa in 1945. The black specks visible in the blast are not flaws in the film, they are bits of shrapnel from the exploding plane.

This picture was definitely NOT taken with a telephoto lens. Photographer's Mate 2/C Pau

Bloody Hell, that's a wee bit to near for comfort and is that another 'Kamikaze' in the upper left hand going to meet his Ancestors?
