USS Yorktown (CV-5), operating in the vicinity of the Coral Sea, April 1942. Photographed from a TBD-1 torpedo plane that has just taken off from her deck. Other TBD and SBD aircraft are also ready to be launched. A F4F-3 Wildcat fighter is parked on the outrigger just forward of the island. Other ships in company include a fleet oiler, a destroyer and a heavy cruiser.
