Bombs Miss Objective: The 384th Bombardment Group (H) flew as the entire 41st C Combat Wing on today's mission. The weather at alternate targets was worse than at the primary target, so the primary was attacked using PFF with a visual assist. However, bombing accuracy was poor. Many aircraft ran low on fuel and landed on the Continent before returning to base.
