392nd Bomb Group

Target: NoBall-Siracourt, France #A7 - 6 February 1944 - Mission #33

Twenty-six (26) aircrews were briefed between 0530-0600 and began take-offs at 0900 hours with Lt Good of the 579th as lead aircraft Bombardier. Friendly fighter cover was good and no enemy fighters were encountered. Target weather was extremely poor and the Group elected not to bomb as a result bringing the weapons home. No losses or casualties were experienced with the mission aircraft recovering around 1320 hours. It also was announced this day that Lt Colonel Johnson, the Group Air Executive, was being transferred to the 14th Combat Wing Headquarters as Operations Officer. Also, on the 4th of February, Captain Whittaker, Group Bombardier, was awarded the DFC for his lead success against a Norway target on 16 November 1943.
