• 25 June 1944
  • Mission #122
  • TTarget: Buc A/F

Briefing for (24) crews was held at 1245 hours and take-offs began at 1612. Extremely poor assembly weather as well as solid cloud conditions enroute would cause this mission to be recalled early. The Group, unable to locate the other 14th Combat Wing units because of weather difficulties, turned back at 1900 hours over position 4915N-0020E. No enemy aircraft were sighted but some flak was encountered causing damage to (2) ships. The mission aircraft landed safely at 2100 hours.
