Archive for the 'USS Yorktown' Tag

Ship’s photographer, Bill Roy, had captured a sequence of photos as Yorktown sank which disappeared in the archives over at the Naval History & Heritage Center. What was remarkable about this sequence was that it showed Yorktown going down stern first as opposed to the more commonly held belief that she went down bow first.

Now, courtesy the Battle of Midway Roundtable, the photos have been rediscovered and are available at the NHHC’s site here and here.
