• 14 June 1944
  • Mission #109
  • Target: Emmerich

This target was the only strategic target assigned to the 14th Combat Wing this day and the 392nd was selected to be the lead Group of the Wing, the aiming point being an oil refinery. At 0030 and 0200, (36) aircrews were given briefings and at 0435 take-offs began with the 578th leading the Group. All aircraft reached the target to release (852) 250# bombs with the 578th doing an excellent job of demolishing the target. The 576th’s bombs hit wide after the Squadron made four runs over due to cloud cover. Their weapons hit in a field just north of the MPI. No fighters were encountered and flak was accurate enough to case damage to (4) B-24s. All aircraft landed safely around 1045 hours.
