• 7 April 1945
  • Mission #276
  • Target: Krummel

At 0300 hours, (30) crews were given general briefing for this mission and, after a weather delayed take-off, bombers began to roll at 0900. Visual conditions once again favored the lead Bombardiers and all (328) 500# bombs impacted in the target area with excellent results - (67) percent of them within 2000 feet of the aiming point. For the first time in many missions, some 10-15 enemy aircraft were sighted but these fighters did not attack the formations. While flak was light and inaccurate, (4) bombers did return with battle damage. All ships landed at base around 1600 hours.
