MISSION DATA:
DATE 384th BG Mission # 8th AF Mission # 384th PRIMARY TARGET
1944‑12‑19 241 756 Target: Railway Junction
Type: Transportation
Location: Glaadt, Germany
Weather Reduces Force: The 384th Bombardment Group (H) flew only twelve of the planned thirty-nine aircraft on today's mission. After the first twelve took off (all squadron leads and deputies, and six aircraft of the lead squadron), Wing advised Group of a 30 minute delay, so remaining aircraft were held on the ground. A heavy fog settled in preventing any further takeoffs, so the twelve aircraft already airborne completed the mission. On return they were diverted to Swansea, Wales, landing at RAF Fairwood Common.
