Type: Military
Location: Zossen, Germany
Army GHQ Attacked: The 384th Bombardment Group (H) flew as the 41st Bomb Wing C Group on today's mission. Weather in the target area was open for visual bombing, but due to poor visibility and smoke from the bombs of preceding groups, the lead and low squadrons could not pick up the target on the first run. The high squadron was able to aim and release on the first run, so while the lead and low squadrons went around for a second run, the high squadron rejoined the bomber stream and returned to base. The lead and low squadrons completed a successful attack on their second bomb run.
