392nd Bomb Group

Target: Landshut - 16 April 1945 - Mission #282

The marshalling yards of this city, located between Munich and Regensburg, were scheduled for strike on this mission in the continuing effort to choke up what remained of the German transportation networks near the eastern fronts of Bavaria. A force of (31) aircrews were briefed at 0730 hours and all began take-off rolls at 1015 under clear skies. The mission was to be one of the longer routes flown down over southern Germany and into the target. Smoke and haze covered the target areas fairly well and bombing results, though generally good, were not as accurate as those of the previous missions. A total of (286) 500# GPs were released by the Group with (60) percent impacting within a 2000 foot circle of the briefed aiming point. No flak or fighters were encountered and all ships recovered safely at Wending around 1915 hours.
