D3A1s shot down
On 24 August, 1942, Lt. Cmdr. Mamoru Seki (hikotaicho) and Lt. Keiichi Arima (buntaicho) were leaders of Shokaku's first wave to attack American carriers. The third chutai was from IJN carrier Zuikaku and was under leadership of Lt. Reijiro Otsuka. Shokaku’s dive bomber force with 18 Aichi D3A1 and Zuikaku’s group of 9 planes were divided in 3 chutai (9 planes unit). Many planes of these three groups attacked USS Enterprise and scored three hits. After these attacks, Shokaku’s losses were 10 Vals and Zuikaku’s losses were 7 Vals. These planes were shot down by American F4F-4 fighters (CAP) and AA. INFO CREDIT: book Carrier Clash, by Eric Hammel.

Battle of Eastern Solomons, August, 1942
EI-235 was flown by a wingman. EI-232 is in the foreground. By that time the planes had received a coat of green on the upper surface. The motion picture was taken by Lt. Keiichi Arima, observer of the 21st Shotai of Shokaku’s Type 99 Carrier Bomber Squadron in the 1st Strike Group at the Battle of the Eastern Solomons on 24 August, 1942. After striking the Enterprise for direct hits with 250-kg ordinary bombs, PO1c Tamotsu Akimoto, wingman of Arima in the 21st Shotai Type 99 carrier bomber EI-232, looks at the camera. The aircraft commander PO1c Hiroshi Koitabashi is in the rear cockpit. The crew of EI-235 might be PO2c Ryoroku Tsuchiya in the 22nd Shotai because only three out of nine second chutai of IJN Shokaku’s carrier bombers flew by Arima, Koitabashi and Tsuchiya survived in the fierce antiaircraft and interceptions by combat air patrol F4F.
