Nakajima B5N2 "Kate" EI-329 took part in the second wave attack force flying from the
Carrier Shokaku, made up of fifty-four B5Ns, eighty-one D3As and thirty-six A6Ms.
Twenty-seven B5Ns, bombed Kaneohe Naval Air Station, Ford Island and Barbers Point.
Photograph shows aircraft has dropped its 250kg bombs, leaving target area.

This photo appears to show NAS Kaneohe Bay rather than Pearl Harbor.
