Introduction: On December 7th, 1941, Japanese aircrafts bombarded the American fleets in a Pearl Harbor naval base, near Honolulu Hawaii. The attack on Pearl Harbor was a strategic scheme to take out the American fleets after the Nine-Power Treaty failed, due to Japan’s violation of it.

You need warm air and cool air to form a tornado, then they make a change in wind direction and increase the wind speed. The wind rotates from horizontal to vertical which then creates a tornado. (Weather wiz kids) Damage paths can be found in excess of one mile wide and 50 miles long.

WW I and WW II SSG Estes. It was a little more than a decade after the Wright brothers when the battle for military air supremacy began. In Max Hastings WW1 Planes: ‘Inventions of the Devil’(2013) “On August 25, 1914, staff at a Bavarian corps headquarters near Nancy in northeast France saw an airplane that circled overhead and dropped a brilliant light.
