December 7, 1941. This date became one of the most significant dates in the world history and the story of the Second World War when the Pearl Harbor was attacked. Minutes before the full-fledged attack, aircraft from the Japanese Imperial Navy bombed the nearby U.S. Naval Air Station on the east coast of Oahu, sending some 27 Catalina PBY "flying boats" down to the ocean floor. There have been attempts to photograph the wreckage, but none was successful until the latest expedition by archeologists from NOAA and the University of Hawaii.
Check out the cool photographs they have released.
