11 March 1945 Mission #256 Target: Kiel

For the first time since the 4th of August, the naval facilities at Kiel were assigned to the Group for strike. On this occasion, the submarine pens were again briefed which was the first target of this category in over a year. At 0615 and 0730 hours, (30) crews were briefed with bombers starting launch at 0920. The entire force went over the target but had to bomb by H2X due to weather. Navigator reports on return indicated that bombs were on target. A total of (1464) 100# weapons were dropped in this target complex. There were no fighters encountered and AA fire was moderate, but inaccurate. One bomber returned with flak damage but all landed safely about 1535 hours.
