Battleship Row 1

Aerial view of "Battleship Row", beside Ford Island, during the early part of the horizontal bombing attack on the ships moored there. Ships seen are (from left to right) USS Nevada (BB-36); USS Arizona (BB-39) with USS Vestal moored outboard; USS Tennessee (BB-43) with USS West Virginia (BB-48) moored outboard; and USS Maryland (BB-46) and USS Oklahoma (BB-37) moored outboard. A bomb has just hit Arizona near the stern, but she has still to receive the bomb which detonated her forward magazines. West Virginia and Oklahoma are gushing oil from their many torpedo hits and are listing to port. Oklahoma's port deck edge is already under water. Nevada has also been torpedoed (US Naval Historical Center).
