Odd to contemplate, but if they're RIGHT, congrats to the Imperial Navy for an impressively long journey, undetected.

And to the folks who designed the ships' engines with that kind of fuel efficiency.

On your map, it looks to me that the fleet dang near fell off the planet, there south of Cape Horn. Brad

And, don't forget that the Enola Gay had to travel a slightly longer distance following the same route going in the opposite direction.

Brad, the popular notion is that people fall off the edge of the flat earth.... i.e. they don't come back to tell us what's on the other side, so my logic says we still don't know.  sad   

[...but any geologist worth his salt should be able to give us some educated insights.]  cheeky

Edit: From the nit-picking department ... was the attack on P.H. by air or sea?

The Japanese obviously used a Japanese map of the world to navigate. Maps in Japan show Japan at the centre with Asia and then Africa and Europe extending to the West and the Pacific Ocean and America to the East of Japan. This strategic advantage is also why they could withstand the US so long in the Pacific war.

Im in the belief of a round earth, so my thinking is they could have done it with helicopters, just lift up, hover and let the world turn under them till it came to them

They probably took the northern route which is much less used and sneakier. Plus Sliding over ice is quicker than that pesky wavy water. See Ice Boats.

Why couldn't they fly in a straight line, just stay above the clouds so no one would see them.

They were probably worried that the Royal Air Force would have shot them down mistaking them for German V1s.

Well, if you really want to nit-pick, the answer is yes.

This is the canonical flat-earth map. Still pretty silly.
