• 30 October 1944
  • Mission #191
  • Target: Hamburg

The same target as the day prior was assigned once more with crews being briefed at the same time and the 577th scheduled to lead with Lieutenant Kelly as Bombardier. A take-off of 0905 hours was made, but again weather over target as well as enroute was poor. A total of (21) ships released (460 250# bombs in the target area by PFF means with results not observed. Nine aircraft of on squadron did not drop because the smoke of the lead ship’s release could not be seen. No fighter were engaged and flak was meager. Returning Liberators landed safely back at base around 155 hours.
