10 March 1945 Mission #255 Target: Bielefeld

A primary target of the viaduct was once more assigned for strike with a secondary of the marshalling yards in the town. A force of (28) aircrews were briefed between 0415 and 0530 hours with all starting take-off roll on schedule at 0750. The weather over target was covered by 10/10ths clouds with the lead and low squadrons bombing the primary by GH, unobserved. The high squadron released on the secondary by H2X but results could not be evaluated. A load of (151) 1000# GPs were impacted in these target areas. As in the many preceding raids, no enemy fighters were sighted and flak was meager and inaccurate. All ships recovered around 1520 hours.

The 577th Squadron's bombing made the 2nd Air Division's "Target Victory" publication for outstanding achievement.
