April 8, 1945

On April eighth with another Railroad Bridge as our target at Vipitano, Italy, Brenner Pass, we were again flying in "Belle of the Brawl", but our trip was anything but a success. We lost a turbo in one engine before the IP and had to salvo our bombs in order to stay up with the formation, went over the target behind the formation, met flak just off the IP and at intervals, to and over the target, faded more behind and came back alone through friendly territory. Landed at Bari, Italy" to refuel and back to base at-San Pan in seven hours and fifty minutes and found two holes in one propeller.
