Battle 360

The History Channel, one of my favorites, has a new show that just premiered tonight. Battle 360. The first episode was about the USS Enterprise in World War II. I really enjoyed it and learned some things that I didn’t know. The first air-to-air kill for US Navy pilots of a Japanese aircraft came that day. It was an aircraft launched from the Enterprise, which was 100-200 miles out from Pearl Harbor when the attack happened Dec. 7, 1941. The first kill of a Japanese ship by US Navy aircraft was I-70, a submarine. It was also killed by a pilot from the USS Enterprise. In fact, it was the same pilot who scored the first air-to-air kill. Lucky guy there.
