Join Dr. James Delgado in an illustrated tour of some of Japan's top-secret World War II submarines that now lie wrecked, in deep water, off the entrance to Pearl Harbor. The wrecks, discovered by the Hawaii Undersea Research Laboratory and NOAA, include two "midget submarines" used in the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor, and large "aircraft carrier" submarines built to attack by sea and air. The recently discovered I-400, first of the large Sentoku submarines built to carry three aircraft, and capable of circumnavigating the globe, will also be featured. As a special bonus for members and friends of The Mariners' Museum, the talk will also include details on a rare treasure of the museum - the prototype craft for the Japanese midget submarine program - which has been in the TMM's collections since the end of WWII.
