Hey, do you see what I see?.
Damn right, I do!
Sparks, raise Midway.
Radio: Main body.

That's all?. Just ""Main body""?.
- Send it! - Yes, Sir.

An American PBY, Sir.
A reconnaissance seaplane!

Radio's picked up it's transmission.
It's alerting Midway.

Break radio silence.
Advise Admiral Yamamoto:
lnvasion force has been discovered.

6 large ships in a column, bearing
262 degrees, distance 700 miles.

- You were right, it's Midway.

You know what I mean, Admiral.
- Fletcher's joined Spruance on time.

Another one from Strawberry-9, Sir.
11 ships, course 090, speed 19 knots.
Just what kind of ships?.
First transmission said ""Main body"",
but didn't mention carriers.

That PBY, Strawberry-9,
was at the end of his 700-mile leg.

Nagumo's carriers could be
following the large ships.

Maybe beyond his horizon.
If they are, Fletcher's too far north.
He has to move at top speed now to get
within striking distance by sunset.

But if Nagumo's carriers are
coming in behind the storm front...

Fletcher'd be caught
between two forces.

Yes, if we let him head
for that main body sighting.

Send a flash message to Fletcher:
This is not, repeat, NOT main body.
