Captain Dusty Kleiss deploys bomb on aircraft
Captain Dusty Kleiss deploys bomb on ... 1:32
Flung aloft from the deck of the USS Enterprise into the battle of Midway on June 4, 1942, Kleiss dropped his bomb at 1000 feet to the deck of the Japanese aircraft carrier. “It only took four hits, and that was the end of it” he recalls, but before he could pull up and away three zeros came at him. “Oh Lord, give me a little help” he prayed, just as his gunner shot down one of the zeros and the other two ran. Despite antiaircraft fire from dozens of ships below Kleiss made it back. “God was with us in that battle”, he says.
