Overcoming Weather Diffuculty: For today's second mission, thirteen aircraft of the 384th Bombardment Group (H) flew as a group (but designated as the 41st Combat Wing). The target name given is 'BLANC/PIGNON/FERME', which was located within the commune of Cléty, France. Obscuration of the target and maneuvering difficulties led the group to make three bomb runs, finally dropping on a target of opportunity (TOO) two miles north of the primary target, which the bombardier believed was a V-1 launch site under construction.
