The USS Arizona (BB-39) burns after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. The ship was hit by four armor-piercing bombs before the forward magazine exploded and the ship caught fire. The Arizona still rests on the harbor bottom below a memorial erected in honor of those who went down with the battleship.
