US pilot who dismissed Pearl Harbor reports dies – washingtonpost.com


SAN DIEGO — Hawaii-based pilot Kermit Tyler thought the big blip on the radar screen on Dec. 7, 1941, was a fleet of U.S. B-17 bombers due in from the mainland, so he replied “don’t worry about it” when told of the approaching mass that turned out to be the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

    RIP – Kermit Tyler, 96, dismissed a big blip on the radar thinking it was a fleet of U.S. planes due in from the mainland. Instead it was 180 Japanese fighters only 132 miles away from Pearl Harbor and approaching fast. Big mistake, Kermie. http://urdead2me.wordpress.com/2010/02/23/rip-kermit-tyler/
