Good picture.

I was watching this just recently;

That was a great idea. When an enemy saw the plane, he didn't know who to shoot at first.  :2thumbs:

"We've got the torpedo damage temporarily shored up, the fires out and soon will have the ship back on an even keel. But I would suggest, sir, that if you have to take any more torpedoes, you take 'em on the starboard side."   Pops Healy, DCA USS Lexington.
