Please join us at the Flying Heritage and Combat Armor Museum on Thursday, December 5, 2019 at 6:30pm for an evening of “Pondering Pearl Harbor.” Ray Panko, who spent 12 years as a docent at Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum, will recap of the significance of Pearl Harbor and walk the audience through a brief overview of the attack. Ray will then present the audience with a list of common beliefs and myths about the attack and let audience select the ones they want to learn more about.

The following inquiries are among the topics the audience will be able explore in detail with Ray: What did FDR know about Japanese intentions? Was the Pacific Fleet nearly destroyed in the attack? Did the Japanese discuss sending a third wave to go after the oil and repair facilities? How did the Japanese get their torpedoes to work in the shallow water of Pearl Harbor? Why were the Army and Navy aircraft on Oahu lined up neatly, making them sitting ducks? Why didn’t the sinking of a Japanese mini-submarine lead to an island-wide alert? If you are interested in World War II history you won’t want to miss this interactive evening!
