    Thanks for posting these images Horst interesting to see the the photos of the Japanese Embassy workers closing the gate,The attache leaving the shed were they had been destroying documents,And the burial of the Japanese pilot with military honors.
    A little different to see photos of the Japanese and what actions they were taking on that day that were not directly related to the bombing on Pearl ie...Military actions .

    In addition, it looks like, the "Val" has its landing flaps down and in place ? ...

    Those are dive-breaks, and the payload had already released. The bomb rack was also dropped.
