Over 350 planes of attacked Pearl Harbor. Only 29 were shot down.
347 planes were shot down
yes they did
During the attack on Pearl Harbor 29 of 360 Japanese planes were shot down. Only a few US planes made it in the air, so most Japanese planes were shot down by the sailors on the vessels in the harbor. The Japanese lost nine aircraft in the first attack wave and twenty in the second.

Yes. In fact sevearl p-30's and p-36's fighter planes took off during the attack on Pearl Harbor and shot down 13 Japanese fighter planes. The 13 planes was no hit compared to the 353 planes that acually were involved in the attack.
some sources say 180 and others say 350, but only 29 were shot down. and over 300 US planes were damaged or destroyed.
29 of 360 planes were shot down.
They were caught with their pants down so to speak, however they did manage to shoot down over 131 planes during the attacks.
Yes, and that was Pearl Harbor and the Japanese made an air raid attack with 300 planes only 29 were shot down one of the first was planes shot down was bye Dorie Miller the man in the picture he was the first African-American. Pearl Harbor is how the US joined WW2 and other American Territories. --------------- WWII happened throughout Europe. Pearl Harbor was just the act by the Japanese DURING the war that caused the US to join the fight.
There was many many boats lost and over 1,000 people dead and Many planes went down over 300
I have only found that they lost less than 100 men. I know that 3 submarines were sunk and 29 planes were shot down.

Yes a couple of U.S planes took off from the ground but many never left the ground. The main thing that shoot down Japanese planes was the U.S anti-aircraft guns. We lost 2403 people at Pearl Harbor.
Diplomatic negotiations of pearl harbor broke down because the Japanese felt threatened with such a massive fleet in the Pacific Ocean.
The Japanese didn't use Kamikaze at Pearl Harbor. That practice started in 1944. The Japanese lost 29 planes and 4 midget submarines on December 7th.
About 20 planes, 2 from an airbase on the island and the other 18 off the USS Enterprise, which was supposed to be in the harbor on December 7th, but a storm slowed the task force down. Even though there was a storm the sailors were able to get a scouting squadron off the deck heading to Hawaii
Pearl Harbor was part of America. It was the Japanese who actually attacked Pearl Harbor. What they did was they sent a large number of aircraft into the Harbor. The objective was to destroy as much of the U.S. Navy positioned there as possible. To do this, they did many things. They bombed the ships and shot them with the armaments on their planes. (What I mean is they bombed them and shot them with missiles and guns.) Also, they crashed into the ships. When a plane either ran out of ammo or was about to go down, the pilot would attempt to crash into a ship. Most of the planes had explosives in them that they did not use, so when they needed to do this they could add a bigger bang to the explosion.
the Japs come over to Hawii with 5,000 planes and take down 5 ships at pearl harbor and kill over 7,000 men at Hawii and started WWII for America and the date that happend is Dec. 7th 1941 7:00 O'clock A.M. but if you asking why they did that is because we stopped shipments of Oil to japan for tanks, planes, and all that so they wont attack China
