Mission Comments Weather Changes Plans
The 384th Bombardment Group (H) put up two group formations for this afternoon's mission to knock out V-Weapon launch sites. There was no wing or division assembly, each group flying independently to its target and back. The first group (41A Group) was dispatched to Fleury, France, where the cloud cover was solid, so the 41A Group leader decided to attack their assigned Gee-H target at Bientques. The second group (41B Group) was dispatched to Crépy, France. Similar to the 41A Group, their primary target was obscured so the 41B Group leader ordered the formation to attack their secondary Gee-H target at Crepeuil.
