Default Pearl Harbor - A day to be remembered or forgotten?

Last Monday completed 74 years the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, one of the most painful days of American History. I share with you here a link that brings a collection of dramatic photos, many of them rare, showing the devastation caused by the attack on the airfields of the island. Visit the link below and answer the title question.

Thanks for the photos, I'd seen them before but it had been awhile.

On a related note, I am still hunting down Hobbymaster B5N Kate (HA2006). 1 72 from the Soryu. Its the only TORPEDO Kate in the HM catalogue that took part in the Pearl Harbour (there are 2 other Bomb Armed) but I need the Torpedo armed version.

If anyone knows of one for sale can you drop me a PM?

Wow that bird really is hard to find. i tought i knew some shops but....
Even in some Russian stores :-D. All sold out.

I really like the Japanese WW2 Warbirds.
They always carried these mythical names "Magnificent Lightning" Shin Den. Etc etc

This year i went to Okinawa and learned about the brutal hard fight that took place at that Island. Offcourse you learn about it at school and you read about it. But when you visit the locations it adds something extra.

My country suffered severely under the Japanese rule in WW2 ( in our former colonies) . We lost a the battle at Java sea under the command of Admiral Karel Doorman. He spoke out his (in our history) famous words. " I am attacking , who will follow?"

He actually followed a command from the commander of the ABDACOM Archibald wavel and sub cmndr helfrich (American British Dutch Australian Command) to stay put in the region and give no quarters. Knowing damn well he was outnumbered by the Japanese Imperial Navy.

Hey died when his ship "De Ruyter" got hit , he went down with it.

The Japanese commited horrible atrocities to our Dutch colonists and the Indonesian people.
