2nd Pearl Harbor Attack

Recommended Posts

A few weeks ago while playing on the computer I over-heard on the TV (History Channel I believe) a story on how the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor in the spring of 1942 with 3 seaplanes. They were blown off course, and attacked the wrong target (they were after fuel depots) and all crashed. The US navy calculated by fuel capacity of the seaplanes where they came from and attacked the base accordingly. Has anyone else heard of this or see the show I wasn't paying enough attention too? Thanks

We took an island tour around Oahu in July. The Bus Driver (who was excellent) never stopped talking and just full of historical facts. He actually told of this story. Up to that point I had never heard anything about it before.

New to me too, though I do believe they flew recon. in Jan. and Feb. to get an idea of the results of the Dec. 7th attack and how things had progressed since.
