DATE 384th BG Mission # 8th AF Mission # 384th PRIMARY TARGET
1945‑02‑15 267 832 Target: Synthetic Oil Plant
Type: Oil Industry
Location: Bohlen, Germany
Weather Reduces Force: Heavy fog closed in quickly during takeoff operations, preventing almost half of the force from flying. The 384th Bombardment Group (H), initially ordered to provide all three squadrons of the 41st B group, formed itself into two reduced squadrons - lead and low - during assembly. They also picked up some aircraft from the 379th BG. The primary target was 'visual only' so the secondary was attacked using radar aiming. Weather at the home base remained bad on their return, so all but one aircraft landed elsewhere.
