USS Lexington (The Blue Ghost)

On the aft side of the island you see a Japanese Rising Sun flag with a black border. This flag indicates the exact location where in November 1944 a Japanese Kamikaze plane (code name Zeke) crashed into USS Lexington, killing 50 of her crew.

His mission was a success.

Please visit our "Above and Beyond" exhibit on the 2nd deck to experience the incredible destructive power of the Kamikaze.
