8 May 1944 Mission #81 Target: Brunswick

Again two plans were called for on this date. Plan "A" again was Gutersloh with Plan "B" being Brunswick. Briefing for (28) crews was held between 0245-0315 hours where both plans were briefed in detail. The Group was to be led once more by a PFF ship because of forecast weather over Germany. At 0610 hours, (27) ships began take-offs with (25) over target bombing the designated primary of Plan "B". The weather was 10/10ths undercast, thus results of release of (1249) 100 II and 500# bombs were not observed. While approximately 25-30 enemy aircraft were sighted, none attacked the Group. Flak over target was again intense and accurate with (11) B-24s suffering battle damage. There were no aircrew casualties or ships lost and all returned safely around 1300 hours.
