• 11 August 1944
  • Mission #150
  • Target: Pacy-Sur-Armancon

The target was a German Air Force fuel supply depot - small but vital - that a 3rd Bomb Division force of B-17s had missed the day prior. The mission was first called, then scrubbed, and once more reinstated. Briefing was held at 0430 and 0500 hours for (36) crews, many of whom had to go without breakfast due to the hurry nature of the mission and a 0630 take-off time deadline for the mission from higher headquarters. Take-offs began precisely at 0630 for all crews with the first squadron over missing the aiming point due to a malfunctioning bomb-sight. The next squadrons hit the MPI with precision, completely destroying it. A total of (828)250# GPs struck the target area. No fighters were seen and flak was very light. Aircraft returned at 1340 hours with no battle damage and an excellent mission in their record.
