Battleship Row 3

This pic was taken from a Japanese aircraft shows "Battleship Row" under attack at about 0800hrs, and in the distance, white smoke rises from Hickham Field. Grey smoke in the centre middle distance is from the USS Helena (CL-50), at the navy yard's 1010 dock. In the foreground, USS West Virginia (BB-48), USS Oklahoma (BB-37) and USS California (BB-44) have been torpedoed, as marked by ripples and spreading oil, and the first two are listing to port. Torpedo drop splashes and running tracks are visible at left and centre (US Naval Historical Centre Photograph)
