Two Squadrons Hit Primary: The 384th Bombardment Group (H) led the 1st Air Division and the 41st CBW Wing formation in the A Group position. The Lead and high squadrons completed a Gee-H attack on the primary as planned. The low group's Gee-H equipment failed prior to arriving at the primary IP, so it flew directly to the secondary target IP and attacked that target using PFF.
