Being a fighter and it's location I'm guessing this is from the attack on Pearl.

Is that another one in the back on the left?

This is a fairly well-known wreck off Oahu and several dive shops will take divers to it. It's about a 20 minute boat ride from the shop (I went with Island Divers - www.oahuscubadiving.co​m (external link)).

The wreck lies in about 106 feet of water and there is a current, so you'll need to be an advanced-level diver to go on it, but otherwise it's a fairly easy dive. The depth of the site produces a short bottom time of about 15 minutes and four-minute decompression stop so divers should monitor their depth/time closely. Along with garden eels, jacks and stingrays frequent the site.

The plane ended up there in 1948 when a routing mission ended abruptly when the WWII aircraft started to sputter. As the engine began to fail, the seasoned pilot managed to make a smooth water landing, wheels up, flaps slightly extended. The pilot was rescued bobbing nearby in his lifejacket, the plane wasn’t even damaged.

You can likely find more information on it via Google. Just seach for Corsair wreck Oahu.

Can't be from the attack on Pearl Harbor, the Corsair did do go into production until 1942 or so.
