• 1 March 1945
  • Mission #248
  • Target: Ingolstadt

he rail marshalling yards in this key center just south of Nurnburg were scheduled as a target for this mission with (32) crews given briefings at 0515 and 0630 hours. At 0930, (30) bombers began their take-offs on what was to be a very long mission of 9:00 hours. All (30) went over the target but were forced to release their (264) 500 pounders by H2X radar, the target once more being obscured by low clouds. Results were not observed as the Group experienced no flak or enemy fighters. On the way home, about one-third of the aircraft had to land on the Continent to refuel but by 2130 hours all ships had returned safely to Wendling.
