USS_Yorktown_going_down

Battle of Midway, June 1942 USS Yorktown (CV-5) sinking, just after dawn on 7 June 1942, as seen from an accompanying destroyer. The ship has capsized to port and is settling rapidly by the stern, with the speed of her motion perhaps causing the moderate fuzziness of this image. This view looks over the ship's upper starboard structure, with the front edge of the flight deck in the center and her forefoot visible beyond. U.S. Naval History and Heritage Command
