A Japanese bomber scores a bomb hit on the signal bridge of USS YORKTOWN. The bomb passes through the first deck and explodes near the carrier's hull. It punches two large holes through her side, killing five men, and wounding another 26. YORKTOWN, however, remains fully operational, and her anti-aircraft gunners bring the offender down.
