The Japanese Imperial Navy destroyed the US Naval Battleship Fleet at Pearl Harbor, with aircraft launched from aircraft carriers, on 07 December 1941. US Army Air Force B-29 Superfortress's dropped an Atomic Bomb on the city of Hiroshima on 06 August 1945.
Pearl Harbor is a shallow-water United States Navy base located in Hawaii. It was attacked by Japanese naval aircraft on December 7, 1941.
It couldn't have been done without air power (a new weapon at sea/aircraft carriers).
The carriers of the US Pacific Fleet surprised the Japanese who had come to destroy it, sinking four Japanese fleet carriers at the loss of one of their own, completely turning the tables in the Pacific war at sea.
Basically the Japanese lost any hope of being able to win the war at Midway. It just took more than three more years to convince them of this undeniable fact. Four Japanese aircraft carriers were sunk at Midway - three in the span of about ten minutes. The hopes of the Japanese Empire went to the bottom with these ships. The Japanese had absolutely no hope of being able to replace these ships, nor the highly experienced pilots who had been on them. The Japanese only completed building one single aircraft carrier after Midway during the rest of the war (and it was promptly sunk by a US submarine on its first cruise). The US built dozens. OMG!!! DONT NOBODY NEED TO ALL THAT JUST SAY DEY LOST AIRCRAFT CARRIERS UH DUD !!! A+ BAYBEE

The Japanese Army bombed Pearl Harbor (In Hawaii)
The Japanese Navy eliminated the US Battleship Fleet at Pearl Harbor. But did NOT eliminate the most critical portions of the US Navy: The fuel oil depots, repair facilities, and most important of all, the United States Navy's deadliest weapon: The Aircraft Carriers.
It was a major boost to Allied morale, particularly since it happened only six months after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. It marked a major payback for that attack scoring a four to one victory in carriers, two to one in aircraft and a ten to one ratio in personnel.
Aircraft Powerpack happened in 2006.

North Carolina It happened in Kitty Hawk, NC on December 17, 1903
A Japanese Invasion Fleet set out for Port Moresby from Rabaul. It was protected by a Covering Fleet of one small carrier and two Fleet Carriers. In order to stop the invasion the allies had a Task Force of cruisers under the command of the Royal Australian Navy which went to protect Port Moresby from the Invasion fleet while the two US Fleet carriers took on the Japanese carriers. The two day battle was about even. The Lexington was lost and so was the small Japanese carrier. The Japanese invasion fleet went home. No invasion. The Battle was over. The End.
