Kleiss was number 4 in the dive. He saw Earl Gallaher miss the ship with his bomb and saw the plane behind Gallaher miss as well. Kleiss made the necessary adjustments and dropped his bomb. When hee looked back he saw that he had hit the Hiryu at about the same spot he had hit the other ship [Annotator's Note: the aircraft carrier IJN Kaga] earlier in the day.
