• 15 August 1944
  • Mission #154
  • Target: Whittmundhafen

At 0330 and 0430 hours, (36) crews were given briefings and by 0842 the Group aircraft were taking off. All aircraft went over the target, however, (9) did not release because of cloud covering the aiming point. The results for the (27) releasing were considered good as crews returning believed the target was hit. A total of (1359) 100# bombs were dropped on this target. Once more no fighters were encountered and flak was meager. One ship of all returning received some flak damage. Aircraft from the raid landed about 1415.
