Enterprise entered World War II on the morning of December 7, 1941, when her scout planes encountered the Japanese squadrons attacking Pearl Harbor. Not until May 14, 1945, when a Kamikaze attack off Kyushu, Japan, left a gaping hole in her flight deck, was she forced to leave the war.

Aircraft Carrier Photo Index: USS ENTERPRISE (CV-6)

"Th[is] famous photo, [...], shows the crash site of a US Navy SBD with two crew members and also the crash of a Japanese Aichi Val dive bomber with two crew members. The two planes crashed next to each other because they were tightly engaged and one apparently struck the other, with no altitude to bail out, killing all four in both planes."
