Joseph J. Bitzer, Mission March 12, 1945

on the 12th went up to drop more bombs on a place called Florisdorf, near Vienna. We didn't much care what kind of bombs were loaded in our bomb bay. They could be a variety of weights and shapes depending on the target. He just needed to know when to open the bomb bay doors and when to toggle the bombs away. Everyone in the crew had his allotted position for takeoff and landing, a position that would result in the least amount of injury in case of an accident. The most dangerous times of flying, except when over the enemy, were landings and takeoffs.
