The Hunt For The USS Hornet
One of the most important aircraft carriers in WWII history has been located thanks to efforts from the crew of Paul Allen’s R/V Petrel.
USS Hornet (CV-8), the seventh ship to carry the name Hornet, was a Yorktown-class aircraft carrier of the United States Navy. During World War II in the Pacific Theater, she launched the Doolittle Raid on Tokyo and participated in the Battle of Midway and the Buin-Faisi-Tonolai Raid. In the Solomon Islands campaign, she was involved in the capture and defense of Guadalcanal and the Battle of the Santa Cruz Islands where she was irreparably damaged by enemy torpedo and dive bombers. Faced with an approaching Japanese surface force, Hornet was abandoned and later torpedoed and sunk by approaching Japanese destroyers. Hornet was in service for a year and six days and was the last US fleet carrier ever sunk by enemy fire. For these actions, she was awarded four service stars, a citation for the Doolittle Raid in 1942, and her Torpedo Squadron 8 received a Presidential Unit Citation for extraordinary heroism for the Battle of Midway. Her wreck was located in late January 2019.

30 Seconds Over Tokyo
One of my all-time favorite movies. Me and a friend rode our bikes to watch this movie at Green Acres Cinema in Saginaw, Michigan. It featured Sensurround.
They are making another Midway movie:
Midway is an upcoming American historical action drama film directed by Roland Emmerich and written by Wes Tooke. The film will star Woody Harrelson, Luke Evans, Mandy Moore, Patrick Wilson, Ed Skrein, Aaron Eckhart, Nick Jonas, and Dennis Quaid. The film will be released on November 8.
Don’t know why this needs to be redone but it’s got Woody Harrelson so I’ll give it a shot. Seems a far cry from the absolutely star-studded cast of 1976.
