1944‑02‑06 60 212 Target: Nancy/Essey Aerodrome
Type: German Air Force (Luftwaffe)
Location: Nancy, France
Clouds, Snow Conceal Targets: The 384th Bombardment Group (H) supplied two group formations for today's mission, which were assigned to fly as the lead and low groups of the 40th & 41st Composite Combat Wing; 92nd BG supplied the high group, which finally joined the wing formation at the IP. Heavy cloud cover partially hid the primary target, and snow on the ground prevented locating it. Attempts to bomb the secondary target, target of last resort, or a target of opportunity (TOO) were unsuccessful, and the bombers returned to Grafton Underwood with their loads.
