Hi all,

I have to say that I just saw a program on either The Discovery or History Channel (not sure) regarding the famous captured Battleship Row photo taken during the attack.  The program was doing a study, both re-enactment and forensic, to determine if the splashes in the photo were from a midget sub in the harbor.  I was quite dissapointed to see Daniel Martinez involved in the position that this was possibly the "missing mini-sub".  I thought he was more knowledgeable than that.  In the final result, it was determined that this was not a sub....but no mention of the fact that mini-Es wherabouts during the attack have already been determined, and that this would have to have been a "Midget-F" a 'New" find!

Aloha Jon,
Much of our discussion about that photo, taken from a B5N flown by my late friend Hirata Matsumura, is posted at the USS West Virginia site.

Hope this guides you further,
