[AII-] 352 and AII-318 photo #1
[AII-] 352 and AII-318 are high level bombers from the Kaga high level first wave unit on 7 December 1941.
The crew identity is unknown. The date attack, for the Japanese is 16th year, 12th month, 8th day.
The year is given as the year of an Emperor's reign, in Hirohito's case this was known as 'Showa', so the this
can be literally read as 16 Showa or the 16th year of Hirohito which equated to 1941. The day is Tokyo time,
i.e, when it was the 7th here (or in Hawaii) it was the 8th in Japan. Note the demarkation between the fuselage
green and the brown tail of "352" [with AII-318 in the background.] Note the absence of portside "AII-" on
Kaga KATE "352" over Oahu. This means where the deck crew had not completed the painting yet it was in operation.
See the note on the brown tail in EII-307 and how it is determined NOT to be red.
