Mission Comments Bombardiers' Skills Pay Off
The 384th Bombardment Group (H) flew as the 41st Bomb Wing C group on today's mission. The requirement to sight the target visually was a challenge for our crews, as there was four to six-tenths cloud coverage in the target area. However, by taking advantage of the clear areas between clouds and using ground reference points, bombs were away on the first run with good accuracy.
