The Naval Historical Foundation has an article online titled “Photographer Remembers Sinking of USS Yorktown (CV-5)” at their website. Written by CDR William G. Roy, USN(Ret), “CDR Roy describes his experience as a member of the salvage party on board the aircraft carrier USS Yorktown (CV-5) during the Battle of Midway.”
We received an email from Mark, asking us to include some links to digital models of CV-5. He provided this link to Special Aircraft Services for game modifications for their flight simulator so that you can fly from the deck of USS Yorktown. There’s some amazing work there. I’ve been out of touch with flight simulators for years, and video games in general (if I have games in the house, then models don’t get built, books and articles don’t get written, websites don’t get updated), so I’m not really up on this particular Sim, but the artwork for Yorktown looks amazing. I’ve added this to the Models page for now.
