There is an incorrect statement in NatGEO video there: first AC sunked in history was HMS Glorious during Norway invasion year before.

Even before HMS Glorious (sunk 8th June, 1940) there was the sinking by U-29 of HMS Courageous on 17th September, 1939. Courageous was originally a first world war cruiser but converted to a carrier in the period between the two world wars.

Terrible journalism or lack thereof on MSN.com.  Doesn't take much skill to research 2 carriers were sunk before the Coral Sea battle.  First carrier sunk by other carrier based aircraft.  Interesting history about the 2 Royal Navy carriers sunk by Germans.  They spotted Swordfish planes and realized that carrier must be close.

In August of 2004, Zappi, Homba, Bambam887, RedScorpion and MOOXE all pitched
in to create this Close Combat site. I would to thank all the people who have visited and
found this site to thier liking. I hope you had time to check out some of the great Close Combat
mods and our forums. I'd also like to thank all the members of our volunteer staff that have
helped over the years, and all our users that contributed to this site!
