1944‑08‑12 178 545 Target: "Landing Ground"
Type: German Air Force (Luftwaffe)
Location: La Perthe, France
Luftwaffe Attacked Near Paris: The 384th Bombardment Group (H) provided all three groups of the 41st C Combat Bombardment Wing on today's mission. The mission proceeded generally as briefed, up until bomb release - then the bomb release on the high group lead aircraft failed to operate. The high group leader asked wing for permission to make a second run, which was granted, but the target was so obscured by prior bombing that they were unable to aim accurately. The high group then proceeded to the briefed secondary, an airfield between Étampes and Mondesir and completed a successful attack there.
