Mission Reports

303BG Mission Report - Target: Road Junctions at Flers & Conde-Sur-Noireau, France. Crews Dispatched: 38 (358BS - 8, 359th - 10, 360th - 9, 427th - 11). Length of Mission: 5 hours, 20 minutes. Bomb Load: 6 x 1,000 lb G.P. & 12 x 500 lb G.P. bombs. Bombing Altitudes: 21,300 ft & 21,200 ft. Ammo Fired: 0 rounds.

Road junctions near Flers and Conde-Sur-Noireau, France were the target. Thirty- eight 303rd BG B-17s took off to attack . The two spare aircraft returned as ordered. Weather over the targets was 10/10 cumulus with small breaks. No enemy aircraft or flak was encountered. Crews reported seeing only a few friendly fighters. There were no casualties and all aircraft returned to Molesworth.

The 41st CBW-A formation of the 303rd BG(H) dropped 108 1,000-lb. M44 bombs on the primary target. Bombing results could not be observed. The 303BG-A lead aircraft had no Gee-H equipment, so bombs were dropped on the 379 lead B-17 from 21,300 feet.

The 41st CBW-B 303rd BG(H) formation dropped 174 500-lb. M43 and 42 500-lb. RDX bombs from 21,200 feet. Two aircraft returned with their bombs when the bomb release equipment malfunctioned. One crew spotted bombs through a small hole in the clouds hitting the town.

401BG / 612BS Mission Report - D-Day plus one found bad weather still prevailing which explains the GH method used to bomb Falaise, France -- rail and transportation center South of the Invasion area. Two bomb runs due to the GH equipment malfunction and no bombing results were observed. Meager and inaccurate flak consisting of 4 to 9 bursts only were observed from the Invasion area but none of our aircraft had battle damage and all returned safely. source: 612th Bombardment Squadron History
401BG / 614BS Mission Report - The Squadron was the lead of the High Box which bombed a tactical target by PFF through 10/10th cloud at Falaise, France. This was a target south of the invasion area and a rail and transportation point leading into the area behind the German troops. Blocking these points allowed the ground strafing aircraft and fighter-bombers of the RAF and the USAAF to devastate the German reinforcements trying to reach the invasion areas. Because of a malfunction in the GH equipment two runs had to be made over the target. There was some meager and inaccurate flak but none of the Group aircraft were damaged in any way. Crews: Kaufman Taylor Rozzell Kenney Risher.source: 614th Bombardment Squadron History www.401bg.org
401BG / 615BS Mission Report - Choke points on a railway line at Falaise, France were assigned to the 401st Bomb Group on this mission. But since the target was almost totally covered by clouds, two runs were made which were described as successful, although no observations could be made because of complete undercast. The briefing for 18 crews was at 0645 hrs with the first aircraft being scheduled to take off at 0945 hrs. By 0947 hrs all 18 aircraft had become airborne but it was 1531hrs before the last of them had returned from the mission over France. The 401st furnished the High Box of the 94th CBW, the 615th flying as the High Squadron. The mission leader was Major McCree. No enemy aircraft were encountered or even seen and only meagre flak bursts were noted in the area. The 615th loading list was as follows: Christensen, Heenan, Mann, McIlraith, Post, Neill.source: 615th Bombardment Squadron History www.401bg.org
44BG Mission Report - The 7th found the Group on a mission to Lisieux, France., a road and highway as well as a railroad choke point in the Invasion area. Again, the target was tactical and was bombed with unobserved results. The 66th did not participate while the 67th sent 7 ships, 8 by the 68th.? by the 506th. No flak or enemy aircraft were encountered. Bombing was done by G-H method. Every one is asking, "Where is the Luffwaffe?" All planes returned to base at 1725 hours, no battle damage and the 67th reported 17 planes in commission for tomorrow. F/0 Trudeau appointed 2nd Lt. - Lt. Thornton assigned to 12th RCD. 67th's A/C #42-109820 N "Wasp's Nest" landed at Nuthemstead. Pilot tried to feather engine but couldn't. Ship transferred to Watton for #1 engine change. Lt. Yatkones and crew assigned and joined. 2nd Lts. Knowles and Starkey promoted to 1st Lt. as of the 3rd.source: 44th Bomb Group web page http://www.8thairforce.com/44thbg
446th Bomb Group Mission Report
Alencon, France

This mission was aborted. Shortly after take-off, one plane (42-51116) crashed, killing 8 of the 10 crewmen.

source: 446th Bomb Group www.446bg.com
447BG Mission Report - Briefing was at 1430 hours and the target was a tactical target at Tours, France. The planes were loaded with 500 pound GP bombs with take off starting at 1700 hours. As the crews flew over the invasion area, they could see shells exploding far inland. The primary target was hidden by clouds, so the formation set course for Nantes, just inland from St. Nazaire. A run on a rail bridge was made but bombs were not dropped. Landing started at 0130 hours Thursday morning. source: 447 Bomb Group Association http://www.447bg.com

91st BG / 323nd BS Mission Report - Airfield at Kerlin/Bastard was partially destroyed by our bombers. Eight 323rd ships participated. All returned safely to base and there were no abortives.

At this particular time, when the invasion of continental Europe is underway, all personnel are held ready and available for immediate duty, regardless of the number of missions they have flown in the past. For this reason, no one is being relieved from combat duty after completion of thirty missions. Several individuals have that number to their credit but are still on duty with the squadron. Their training and combat experience enable them to be of much value to the service at this time.

91BG / 401BS Mission Report - Our target was an airfield at Kerlin Bastard today. We furnished 9 A/C and crews. BOMBING RESULTS: Believed to be excellent, with bombs falling on hangars and runways. ENEMY AIRCRAFT: None. FIGHTER SUPPORT: Good, flying low. FLAK: Meager to moderate amount of accurate continuous following black puffs. REMARKS: Eight minor and no major battle damage to our aircraft.source: 91st BG / 401st BS Mission Report http://www.91stbombgroup.com/
