I followed the NGS expedition with interest, and in the published accounts
of that, they reported finding only a small piece of wreckage which could
have been from any stage of the battle.
Did you see a reference for the photos of the located Japanese carrier ?
It was not the 1998 NGS team, but a combined team from the Naval
Oceanographic Office and Nauticos team in 2000. They located what
appears to be a piece (just a piece) of Kaga, consisting of two gun
tubs and a section of the upper hanger deck. Jon Parshall and Tony
Tully of "Shattered Sword" were in on this discovery. You might want
