What happened to the third wave in pearl harbor?

There was no third attack wave planned (or trained for) for the Pearl Harbor attack on December 7, 1941. The third wave would have been the First Wave landing, refueling & rearming, then launching again. There would have been a significant time lag between the end of the second wave and the start of the third wave. Casualties in the third wave would have been very heavy. The First wave lost nine shot down (4.9% losses); The Second Wave lost 20 shot-down (11.8% losses). Additionally 74 aircraft from both waves were damaged; many of these severely damaged aircraft were shoved over-board to clear the flight deck. US anti-aircraft fire was becoming very deadly after the initial surprise of the first wave.It is also very doubtful that the first wave could complete landing, refueling, rearming, and taking off all before the second wave would arrive back at the carriers (about an hour after the first wave). Otherwise, the third wave would have to wait until the second wave was landed and put below in the hangers to clear the flight deck for the third wave (coming from the hanger deck). In this most likely event, the third wave would have not launched until about 12:30pm local time at the earliest. This wave would not have arrived over targets at Pearl Harbor and vicinity until about 2:15pm (4 ½ hours after the end of the 2nd wave strike). An attack would have lasted about 50-60 minutes (based on first two waves' times), and then returned to the carriers at about 4:30pm. Additionally, the Japanese did not have pre-planned specified targets for this third wave, whether ships in the harbor, ships at sea or ground installations. Specific armaments are required to be loaded depending on the specific targets.This would have exposed the Japanese Strike Force to an additional 5+ hours of the potential for discovery and counter-strike from the Americans. Since the American carriers were not in the harbor, and at an unknown location, the Japanese feared that they were possibly close enough to be a threat.
