392nd Bomb Group

Target: Brunswick - 31 March 1945 - Mission #272

An old target, bombed many times before by the 392nd, once again was chosen for strike. But, this time the cost of aircraft and men lost at this target would be the only grim reminder of missions past as the 392nd crews would come through unscathed from a successful raid on this day. At 0300 hours, (31) crews were briefed and all started take-off launches at 0550 hours. Weather over the target was undercast, forcing the Group formation to bomb by H2X radar. The (340) 500# GPs released were thought to have struck the transportation facilities in the city with accuracy, though results could not be observed. No fighters were sighted and flak was virtually non-existent over this once savagely defended target. All crews returned safely around 1220 - bringing to a close a Group mission count of (25) raids flown, the most of any month previous in combat.
