Port Attacked: The 384th Bombardment Group (H) flew as the High Group of the 41st Combat Wing on today's mission. Bombs were released on the wing leader using PFF aiming. The group leader released his bombs late due to 'freezing of the controls,' but the majority of the group released bombs on the wing lead. The target area was obscured by clouds so the results of the bombing were unobserved.
