MISSION DATA:
DATE 384th BG Mission # 8th AF Mission # 384th PRIMARY TARGET
1945‑01‑20 257 801 Target: Rail and Road Bridges
Type: Transportation
Location: Mannheim, Germany
Transportation Bombed: The 384th Bombardment Group (Heavy) formed the 41st B group on today's mission. Weather prevented visual bombing, and the formation was unable to use Gee-H guidance to the target, so the PFF Primary target was bombed, with unobserved results. Upon the Group's return to Grafton Underwood, a heavy snowstorm forced nearly all aircraft to land elsewhere.
