U. S. Navy sailors have tied down Japanese aircraft from the Pacific theater to the deck of the escort aircraft carrier USS Copahee as it sails toward the West Coast. The ship may have carried the National Air and Space Museum’s Zero, one of twelve found on Saipan Island. The forward deck elevator is lowered into the hangar deck.
