MISSION DATA:
DATE 384th BG Mission # 8th AF Mission # 384th PRIMARY TARGET
1944‑12‑18 240 754 Target: Road Junction
Type: Transportation
Location: Gemünd, Germany
Weather Challenges The Plan: The 384th Bombardment Group (H) flew as the 41st Combat Wing C Group on today's mission. Clouds to above 29,500 feet, and an inoperative Gee-H ground station, forced the Group to bypass the primary target and attack the PFF secondary. Air traffic conflict forced the Group to do a 360° turn at the IP. A technical failure on the bomb run forced the high group to go around on a second run, which was accomplished successfully. The Group could not reassemble after bombing because of the weather conditions, so all squadrons returned to base separately.
