• 25 September 1944
  • Mission #172
  • Target: Koblenz

Briefing for this mission was held for (30) crews at 0430-0500 hours and at 0730, all began take-off. The bombing was accomplished on PFF flares, all ships dropping a total of (262) 500 pounders in the target area through 10/10ths clouds. Results were believed good by returning crew estimates. No fighters were engaged or seen, but fairly accurate flak damaged (12) returning ships. All landed at Wendling around 1350 hours.
