Battle of the Coral Sea, May 1942. A "mushroom cloud" rises after a heavy explosion on board USS Lexington (CV-2), 8 May 1942. This is probably the "great explosion" from the detonation of torpedo warheads stowed in the starboard side of the hangar, aft, that followed an explosion amidships at 1727 hrs. Note USS Yorktown (CV-5) on the horizon in the left center, and destroyer USS Hammann (DD-412) at the extreme left.
They have picked a location in DC for a new museum. Heard it from a Navy History type at Oceana at the show. She wouldn't tell me where.For 95% of the folks who would go to a museum that would be unreasonable. They really need to move it off base or to somewhere the public can access easily like the Naval Aviation Museum.
Hopefully upwind from DC Water.Anacostia Park across from the Yard. She is mistaken, however, as the deal is not done. It involves a complicated land swap and then a multi-year fund raising effort. If the Navy is lucky it will have a true National Museum in about 10 to 15 years.
