1943‑08‑31 19 88 Target: Fighter Airfield
Type: German Air Force (Luftwaffe)
Location: Romilly-sur-Seine, France
Target Hidden, Bombs Held: The 384th Bombardment Group had eighteen (18) aircraft airborne as scheduled; take-off time being 1544 o'clock, a delay in take-off resulted as the leader's airplane blew a tail wheel tire in taxiing to take-off position. This group climbed through the overcast and arrived at the rendezvous point on time where it was joined by the other groups. Due to complete cloud coverage [at the primary target], a turn was made to pick out a target of opportunity, unable to do so, this group returned to the home base with their bombs.
