On Sunday September 2, 1945, the formal surrender document was signed aboard the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay. At 9:25 AM, with General Douglas MacArthur, Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz, and Admirals Halsey and Sherman presiding, the Instrument of Surrender was completed with the affixing of signatures.
The Second World War was at last over. Right on cue, and as if staged by Hollywood, shafts of brilliant sunlight broke through the morning mist floodlighting the historic scene, and a mighty rumble began to fill the air. A great Armada of American aircraft swept across Tokyo Bay as Corsairs, Hellcats, Avengers, Helldivers, Mustangs, Thunderbolts and Superfortresses, heralded in the peace.
