Reconstruction of Yamato as she appeared during her Final Sortie in April 1945:
Look closely and you will see a number of Navy planes above Yamato (little black dots) and two planes above the destroyer on the right that appear to be coming in to attack Yamato from the port side, as well as at least 2 planes above and to the right of the lead destroyer.
US Navy Caption:"Japanese battleship Yamato listing to port and down at the bow, during attacks by U.S. Navy carrier planes north of Okinawa, 7 April 1945. One of her escorting destroyers is at left.
