#FunFactFriday – Navy tradition holds that pilots who make a navigational error and land on the wrong carrier get mocked by the crew who “decorate” the plane with graffiti.

The Japanese fleet carrier Zuikaku was the last of the six carriers that attacked Pearl Harbor to be sunk. She was also the first Japanese fleet carrier to be sunk by carrier born aircraft launched torpedos, all others had been sunk by dive bombers or submarines. Over 800 of her crew were lost and another 800 were rescued by other IJN ships.
