RE: The B-17 landing scene (Midway 1976) . . .

There were 2 other things I forgot.
In the new movie there was a scene about the Hiryu and it's captain going down with the ship but there was nary a mention of the Yorktown and the destroyer Hamman,in rescue, sinking and the Yorktown finally sunk by I-168 a Japanese sub.This was covered in the first movie,1976.
Another part which distracted me from the seriousness of the movie was the brief appearance of the actor playing John Ford the movie director. Who ever it was did a better job of playing Phil Silvers as Sgt. Bilko than John Ford.
It is still a great movie and even with my nit-picking of various scenes it is a must see....Mark
