1944‑06‑12 133 407 Target: Railroad Bridge 48°32'N,2°0'W
Type: Transportation
Location: La Vicomté-sur-Rance, France
A Different Bridge Destroyed: The 384th supplied all three groups of the 41st C Wing, with Col Robert E Travis in command.
Clouds obscured the primary target, so the wing attacked a target of opportunity (TOO). Strike photos reveal that the wing bombed a highway bridge rather than a railroad bridge.
