    My wife's uncle was at Wheeler Field. A piece of shrapnel broke his jaw. He always said it was from the Arizona blowing up, but it is more likely from a nearby explosion.

    As Roosevelt said "a date which will live in infamy". And was it Yamamoto who said after the raid "we have awakened a Tiger"??

    This was received today via email.

    Aloha,

    Aero-News and Flight Journal have run the story on our effort asking the Navy to move their solar panels to a different location and not desecrate the landscape and hallowed ground of Ford Island runway:

    http://www.aero-news.net/AnnTicker.c...7-7bed717c5d78
    http://www.flightjournal.com/blog/20...-solar-panels/

    We created a petition on Change.org and have received over 1,000 signatures to date. Click on the link below and scroll down to see the comments that have been left. There are power statements left by people around the world who are concerned about saving the runway. Please sign it:

    This is an effort to preserve a sacred National Historic Landmark! Please share this message with your friends.

    Mahalo,
    Blue Skies,
    Ken

    Wow, look at that staircase!

    If you worked in vis control and were late for work one day and found the lift not working......

    And having staggered to the top the SATCO calls a practice fire alarm.......
