The beginnings of a World War 2 legend, the A36. The A36 was produced in small numbers, however it was the basis of the P51 fighter series, which when mated with a British Engine instead of the Allison, was a beautiful thing.

The Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum was very interesting. I didn’t take too many photographs, but I thought this one was particularly noteworthy.
The bomb detonated on August 6, 1945, at 8:15 a.m, 600 meters above the city. The red ball, suspended (to scale) at 600 meters above the city at the detonation point, shows the size of the fireball 1 second after detonation. At this time, the ground directly below the fireball flashed to 3000-4000 degrees Celsius (5432 F - 7232 F).
This model illustrates the damage after the blast — 90% of the city’s buildings were affected; 80% of affected buildings were completely destroyed. It is estimated that 80,000 people were killed instantly, and a total of 150,000 by the end of the year.
The museum had personal effects and stories about people who experienced the bomb. Many of these personal stories were about school children; before the bomb, many children had been enlisted to help demolish buildings (to create fire walls) and other war-related tasks around the city.
(All figures are as reported by the museum)

The USS Lexington explodes after being bombed by Japanese planes in the Battle of the Coral Sea in May of 1942. More than 200 of the carrier’s 2,951-man crew went down with the ship. While Japanese forces won a tactical battle, a number of their damaged ships were unable to participate in the upcoming pivotal Battle of Midway, which took place one month later. (Source)
