15 May 1944 Mission #86 Target: NoBall - Siracourt

The mission this day would be significant as it would be the first time on any mission flown that enemy anti-aircraft fire was not experienced, or seen. At 0300 and 0400 hours, (16) aircrews were given general briefing to be led by a GH ship. At 0630, all (16) began take-off with all going over the target carrying (136) 1000# GP bombs. Due to a GH malfunction in the lead ship on the bomb run, the first two Group squadrons did not bomb. The third did release (32) bombs and believed that the target was hit with fair results. No fighters were seen or engaged and flak was nil. All ships returned safely around 1100 hours.
