Re: Is there enough info here to date Lexington?
I am going to assume early 1940, or about the time of Fleet Problem XXI. Yorktown CV 5 is shown with the black Y on the stack. This was initially painted on in early 1939 at the time of Fleet Problem XX which was held in the Atlantic. Yorktown also carried the Y into 1940, and being that this was a documentary about Hawaii I am assuming it was around the time of Fleet Problem XXI which was held in the Pacific. Conclusion was based upon pictures and dates form Navsource.
