1944‑05‑11 105 351 Target: Railroad Marshalling Yards
Type: Transportation
Location: Saarbrücken and Ehrang, Germany
Railroads Targeted: The 384th Bombardment Group (Heavy) provided two group formations for today's mission. The first group flew as the high group of the 41st A Combat Bombardment Wing (41A Group) to attack Saarbrücken. Clouds obscured the primary target, as well as targets in the Metz, Luxembourg, and Brussels areas, so bombs were held, in keeping with the policy of requiring visual identification and targeting of locations in occupied territory. The second group flew as the high group of the 41st B Combat Bombardment Wing (41B Group) to attack Ehrang. Although thick haze covered the target area, there was sufficient visibility to identify and attack the primary target.
